05/30 - 06/01/2018 - RNA-mediated control of retrotransposons

Wednesday, May 30, 2018 - 18:00 to Friday, June 1, 2018 - 13:00
Summer conference of the German Genetics Society (GfG) on


In the meeting RNA-mediated control of retrotransposons we will discuss recent developments on the mechanisms by which retroelements amplify in genomes, as well as the regulatory pathways that the hosts employ to counteract this process. Amongst these are RNA interference and related, partially overlapping epigenetic mechanisms. We also will discuss, how the mobile genetic elements became domesticated during evolution.

The conference starts on Wednesday, 30. May 2018 at 6 pm and ends with lunch on 1. June 2018.
The venue is the historic Leucorea in Wittenberg.
