The 19th CDB Meeting “RNA Sciences in Cell and Developmental Biology” Call for Application and Abstract Submission We are pleased to announce that the 19th CDB Meeting will be held as follows:
Title: The 19th CDB Meeting “RNA Sciences in Cell and Developmental Biology” Date: May 10 (Mon.) - 12 (Wed.), 2010 Venue: RIKEN Center for Developmental Biology, Kobe, Japan Co-sponsor: Grant-in-Aid for Scientific Research on Innovative Areas, Ministry of Eduation, Culture, Sports Science and Technology (MEXT) "Functional machinery for non-coding RNAs", "Diversity and asymmetry achieved by RNA program” Abstract submission deadline: March 1, 2010 Application deadline: March 15, 2010 URL: http://www.cdb.riken.jp/cdb-rna/
The 19th CDB Meeting is entitled "RNA Sciences in Cell and Developmental Biology". The aim of this meeting is to bring leading scientists from all over the world with a common interest in the regulation of gene expression through "RNA molecules" to share ideas and concepts and discuss the future direction of this exciting research field.
The meeting will cover following topics: - mRNA Splicing - RNA Export - Translational Control - mRNA Localization - RNA Quality Control - RNA Silencing - Epigenetics - Non-coding RNA
Applicants are encouraged to submit poster abstracts with their applications. A small number of poster abstracts will be selected by the organizing committee for oral presentations. A limited number of travel fellowships will be made available to young scientists from abroad.
We look forward to seeing you in Kobe!

you know it will be 10 years this coming June since President Clinton started the Human Genome project....wouldnt it be nice to hear Helicos the first to reach the $1000 mark...that would be headline news....
ahh dare to dream....
this coming June to celebrate 10 years of achievement..there will be a lot of mainstream Media attention and buzz on Genomes, DNA, RNA, personalized medicine etc etc...Maybe Helicos holding off and is timing something for maximum exposure...
