Project Details


The RNA Processing Meeting provides an annual forum for researchers
to share recent findings about RNA splicing and other RNA
processing reactions, RNA catalysis, structure-function
relationships in RNA and RNA-protein complexes, and regulation at
the level of alternative RNA processing. The meetings have
attracted an extraordinarily broad spectrum of scientists,
including biochemists, molecular biologists and chemists. A
continuation of these meetings is proposed for 1988-1990. Speakers
will be chosen from the abstracts submitted. Poster sessions will
provide all conferees with an opportunity to present their work,
and will not be limited. Past meetings have shown that the face-
to-face contact engendered by this format enhances the quality and
rate of progress in this field, promotes collaborative
interactions, and ensures that the most up-to-date methods for
analysis of RNA are communicated promptly.

The problems to be clarified by the Cold Spring Harbor RNA
Processing Meeting include the pathway of assembly of the large
complexes in which nuclear mRNA splicing takes place; the roles of
individual small nuclear RNPs in splicing and other processing
reactions; the mechanisms of trans-splicing; and the role of RNA
catalysis in a variety of steps in the maturation of tRNA, rRNA and
