This symposium "Post-transcriptional Gene Regulation in Plants" will cross disciplines (informatics, biochemistry, genomics) in this major area of gene regulation. It is organized by the Institute of Plant Sciences Paris-Saclay.
Regulation of gene expression at the post-transcriptional level is growing at a rapid pace. Novel experimental and computational tools are applied to address the extent of this regulation globally and its impact on plant growth, development and responses to diverse stresses. New unexpected paradigms of gene regulation are emerging from these studies. Several aspects of post-transcriptional regulation of gene expression will be covered: pre-mRNA processing (capping, splicing, polyadenylation), RNA stability, and translation as well as new connections chromatin modifications through regulatory RNAs (miRNA, siRNAs and long non-coding RNAs).
- Regulation of Pre-mRNA processing
- RNA turnover and surveillance
- Small RNAs
- Long non-coding RNAs
- Regulation of mRNA translation
- RNA stability and antisense RNAs
- Secondary RNA structure and RNA-protein interactions
