ISMB 2022 – Madison, Wisconsin, United States
We are excited to get back to in person iRNA COSI meeting as part of ISMB 2022! ISMB 2022 will offer both in-person and virtual attendance.
iRNA will run for two days July 10-11th, while the entire ISMB meeting runs July 10th-14th (see general schedule here).
Travel support and poster winner prize sponsored by the RNA Society
The integrative RNA biology (iRNA) meeting at ISMB brings together computational and experimental experts that drive new advances in RNA biology and overcome the computational challenges involved.
iRNA gives an excellent opportunity for both PI and trainees to network with other RNA CompBio researchers and to present their work as a talk and/or poster.
Abstract deadline for poster or talks: April 21, 11:59 PM ET
(Talk and/or Poster Acceptance Notifications: Thursday, May 12, 2022)
Late abstract deadline (posters only): Thursday, May 19, 2022
(Late Posters Acceptance Notifications: Thursday, May 26, 2022)
Liana Lareau is an assistant professor in the Department of Bioengineering at the University of California, Berkeley.
The Lareau lab uses computational methods and high-throughput experiments to understand how post-transcriptional processes lead to robust and flexible control of gene expression.
Dr. Kin Fai Au is an associate professor of biomedical informatics at The Ohio State University. He has been developing both experimental and data analytic methods for long-read sequencing for a decade, aiming to address the challenging problems in (epi-)transcriptomics and epigenetics. He applies the methods to investigate the complexity and dynamics of gene isoforms and transposons at the layers of transcriptome and epigenome in stem cells and early embryonic development.
Dr. Chase Weidman is an Assistant Professor at the University of Michigan. The Weidman lab is interested in how cellular signals are propagated through interaction networks at the RNA-protein interface, and how these networks malfunction during cancer and disease. Many long noncoding RNAs associate with chromatin in the nucleus as a part of larger networked ribonucleoprotein granules, where they regulate gene expression and RNA processing. In cancer cells, changes in RNA-binding protein stoichiometry and modification status reorganize the interaction networks of noncoding RNAs, resulting in altered functions. Our vision is to leverage RNA and protein sequencing technologies to characterize these altered interaction network profiles in cancer cells and generate novel therapeutic strategies that target the RNA-protein interface.
Dr. Julia Salzman is an Associate Professor of Biomedical Data Science and of Biochemistry at Stanford University. The Salzman lab develops new statistical methods for biological inference on fundamental questions in the evolution of genomes, including: What is the mechanism and function for single cell regulation of RNA splicing? What drives genomic innovation and diversity from bacterial to eukaryotes?
To approach these questions, the lab uses probabilistic, statistical, and computational biological approaches and test these predictions in experimental systems.
The registration for the meeting is done through the ISCB conference portal.
