Jena RNA Club

Research into RNA comes in many fashions, from biochemical and molecular biological analyses to computational and chemical approaches. We strongly believe that bringing these different approaches together in a common community can only strengthen our ability to investigate this important macromolecule. The Jena RNA Club is a community-focused research series where each meeting highlights the work from one local lab. The focus is on accessibility, discussion, and collaboration, rather than perfectly polished stories. If you are interested in learning more about RNA in any form, we hope you will join us and strengthen our community.

The Jena RNA Club meets most months on the third or fourth Friday of the month at 12:30-13:30.

Please email one of the organizers or direct message us on twitter @JenaRNAClub if you would like to be added to the email list!
