EMBO Workshop – The Epitranscriptome
The regulation of the transcriptome is key to cellular processes that underpin cell biology, development and tissue function. All classes of cellular RNA are subject to post-transcriptional modification, be it by direct chemical modification, editing or non-templated nucleotide additions. It is now emerging that the modification status of the transcriptome is dynamic and responsive to environmental/developmental cues. Together, this has elicited the realisation of an ‘epitranscriptome’ where post-transcriptional RNA modification coupled with recruitment of effector RNA binding proteins dynamically regulates genomic output. Importantly, mutations in setting or reading RNA modifications are causative of many human diseases or congenital disorders. This meeting aims to explore all aspects of this emerging topic, from methods development to molecular mechanism. Most importantly, the meeting will place an emphasis on the contribution of RNA modification to mammalian development, tissue homeostasis and disease.

EPITRAN Final Conference
The Conference is the final event of the COST Action EPITRAN European Epitranscriptomics Network (CA16120 EPITRAN). It will provide insights on biology and applications of RNA modifications as well as showcase some outcomes and activities of the EPITRAN Community. The event will be held online from Monday, 20th September to Wednesday, 22nd September 2021 for three-afternoon sessions.
The program of the event is available here.

MDPI Special Issue -Long Noncoding RNAs in Disease
This Special Issue on long noncoding RNAs in disease aims to promote research on the understanding of the molecular mechanisms and functions of lncRNAs across all disease entities. Contributions on the prognostic and diagnostic value of lncRNA species will also be considered. In summary, we welcome contributions from all relevant fields, ranging from computational biology and molecular biology to biomedicine.
Guest Editor: Prof. Dr. rer. nat. Christoph Dieterich

The NGS Core Facility has a new website!
The NGS Core Facility (UMS2008 IBSLor) is pleased to announce the launch of its new website http://umsibslorNG.univ-lorraine.fr ! Our core facility homepage is available at the following URL : http://umsibslor.univ-lorraine.fr/fr/plateforme/sequencage-haut-debit-ngs.
Our goal with this interactive website is to provide our collaborators and partners an easy way to learn about our services and instruments dedicated to sequencing projects.
Among the main features the site contains all information needed to launch a new sequencing project (service request form, sample sheet, prices…).
For any questions, please email us : email@example.com
