6th Genetic Workshop on small non-coding RNAs

Anfang

Dauer
2 Tage

Berlin

In the recent past it became evident that differences between species of organisms are not only caused by different sets of protein genes. The interplay between genes and the regulation of genes allows a high potential of flexibility in the expression of genetic information. Small non-coding RNAs are involved in such processes. They are in the focus of a fast moving field of research. Much is still unknown and remains to be discovered.

It is the aim of the workshop to provide a broad insight into today’s knowledge. In future the function of small non-coding RNAs may also play a role in the risk assessment of genetically modified organisms. The majority of genetically modified plants reaching the market these days contains multiple events combined (stacked) by conventional breeding. In the long term it may be considered necessary to take into account possible interactions of stacked events in a single plant and the mechanisms of such interactions.

Workshops 1 to 4 of the series were organised by the Robert Koch-Institute (RKI) in co-operation with the Berliner Wissenschaftliche Gesellschaft (BWG). In 2004 the competency for risk assessment and approval of genetically modified organisms and the department responsible were relocated from the RKI to the Federal Office of Consumer Protection and Food Safety (BVL). Since the 5th workshop (2007) this series is co-organised by BVL and BWG.
