ncRNA not only regulate transcription level but one other important role for ncRNAs is their participation in the epigenetic gene regulation. Indeed, increasing evidence show that most epigenetic mechanisms of gene expression are controlled by ncRNAs.

Deep sequencing technologies accelerated the research in these fields by dramatically increasing pace and depth of discoveries.

This workshop will give insight into the three different worlds of non-coding RNAtranscriptomicsepigenetics – and will highlight known and possible connections among them.
