RNA Modifications Special Panel @ iRNA 2021, July 29th (7/16/2021) by yosephb - This year the iRNA got a concentration of abstracts on various aspects of RNA modifications (check out the schedule here). Indeed, epitranscriptomics is a 🔥 topic with many fundamental questions accompanied by both experimental and computational challenges. First, we organized a session to accommodate for the related talks. This then…
The APAeval challenge – status update June 2021 (7/6/2021) by yosephb - The APAeval hackathon was held during the 2021 RNA Society meeting (05/25/2021-06/05/21). APAeval’s aim is to benchmark 18 open-source, poly(A)-site-specific computational tools to provide users a basis for choosing the tools that best cater to their needs. The challenge is designed to be a collaborative effort of RNA biologists, bioinformaticians,…
APAeval Challenge @ RNA 2021 (1/4/2021) by pjewell - APAeval is continuing! As we received lots of positive feedback after our successful hackathon @RNA2021, we decided to continue working on APAeval. Read more about our work in our status update published after the hackathon. If you’re interested to join in any form, just reach out to us at apaeval@irnacosi.org…
