About the Workshop
In the central dogma of molecular biology, RNA was thought only to pass genetic information from DNA to protein. Most recent findings strongly indicate that RNA modifications, like mRNA methylation, play dynamic regulatory roles that are analogous to the reversible epigenetic modifications of DNA and histone proteins. Understanding the function and mechanisms of the dynamic RNA modifications, which are termed 'RNA epigenetics', represents a new challenge at the frontier between different disciplines, such as biochemistry, epigenetics and cutting-edge technology.
