A Biochemical Society Scientific Meeting
Translation UK is an annual meeting for a research community interested in understanding the mechanisms and control of mRNA translation and its impact on disease, drug discovery, biotechnology and agriculture.
The meeting will:
- Provide a forum for UK and European scientists working in this field to meet, exchange ideas and discuss opportunities for collaboration
- Provide opportunities for junior researchers to present their work and engage with leaders in this research field
Translation is an essential and highly conserved process that affects every biological process. Due to the functional links between mRNA translation, RNA stability and localisation. Translation UK 2019 is also of interest to researchers in these fields.
Translation UK 2019 will cover a wide range of topics related to translation including: biochemistry of translation, mechanistic basis of regulation, upstream signal transduction cascades, genomic architecture, ribosome structure and function, structure of translation factors/complexes and regulatory factors (e.g. RNA-binding proteins), RNA modification, tRNA.
