Over the last decade the traditional toolset used to characterize RNA function has expanded. Approaches have been identified that enable the rapid detection, localization, and quantification of RNA on a subcellular basis. The Scientist brings together a panel of experts to discuss emerging technologies to detect RNA and analyze its function. Topics to be covered include the identification and characterization of long non-coding RNAs, RNA detection with single-molecule FISH (fluorescence in situ hybridization), and single molecule RNA FISH followed by flow cytometry. Attendees will have an opportunity to interact with the experts, ask questions, and seek advice on topics that are related to their research.
