EMBL Courses and Conferences during the Coronavirus pandemic

With the onsite programme paused, many of our events are now being offered in virtual formats.

Registration is open as usual for many events, with back-up plans in place to move further courses and conferences online as necessary. Registration fees for any events affected by the COVID-19 disruption are fully refundable.

More information for participants of events at EMBL Heidelberg can be found here.

EMBL is committed to sharing research advances and sustaining scientific interaction throughout the coronavirus pandemic. We are delighted to announce that this conference is going virtual and invite you to join us online.

Symposium Overview

RNA biology is intimately interlinked with DNA metabolism on multiple levels, and the crosstalk between the two nucleic acids involves potential for both conflicts as well as cooperative relationships. On the one hand, gene expression poses a considerable risk for genome maintenance and vice versa. On the other hand, the machineries involved in RNA and DNA transactions are known to cooperate in several important aspects of nuclear biology. This symposium will bring together scientists studying genome maintenance and the DNA damage response with those investigating the biology of transcription and RNA biology in order to discuss these mutual interactions of DNA and RNA metabolism.
