Applications of bioinformatics to non-coding RNAs in the era of next-generation sequencing

Pac Symp Biocomput. 2014;412-6.

Abstract

The human genome encodes a large number of non-coding RNAs, which employ a new and crucial layer of biological regulation in addition to proteins. Technical advancement in recent years, particularly, the wide application of next generation sequencing analysis, provide an unprecedented opportunity to identify new non-coding RNAs and investigate their functions and regulatory mechanisms. The aim of this workshop is to bring together experimental and computational biologist to exchange ideas on non-coding RNA studies.
