Symposium « RNA and genome stability »
Department of Mycology
Institut Pasteur, Paris
December 5, 2018
Auditorium François Jacob
Several recent studies have either augmented or challenged altogether some of the existing ideas about the role of RNA-based processes in maintaining genome stability. This symposium is our attempt to bring together and discuss some of the most exciting new developments in this field.
