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.

The AllBio project has coordinated efforts to utilize the bioinformatics tools and infrastructure developed for the human genome sequencing and make them work to further fields such as microbial, plant, and livestock bioinformatics through a unique approach, based on harvesting bringing together communities to solve actual use cases and overcome common information bottlenecks.
