Designed to emphasize the conversion from understanding of fundamental biology of RNA to implication of our knowledge of RNA into biotechnology and medical research. This course aims at training outstanding students and postdoctoral fellows from Asia and around the world who wish to conduct multi-disciplinary research to break the technology limits. We welcome both applicants with quantitative backgrounds (including Physics, Mathematics, Engineering and Computer Science) and those with experimental backgrounds. The lectures will introduce the basic concepts and methods, as well as cutting-edge research on RNA sequencing, structural analysis, RNA-protein interaction and drug discovery. Both experimental training and computational practices will be arranged to ensure students’ understanding and gaining hands on experiences.
