Welcome note

The goal of RNA Club is to bring together enthusiastic researchers from the Czech Republic as well as the neighboring countries to discuss the cutting edge research on RNA biology. Furthermore, we hope that the RNA club will serve to stimulate scientific exchange and create opportunities for new collaborations among the participants.

Prague is honored to host RNA researches from middle Europe once again after last year successful meeting in Brno.
