Welcome note

The goal of RNA Club is to bring together enthusiastic researchers from the Czech Republic as well as the neighbouring countries to discuss the cutting edge research on RNA biology. We wish that the RNA club will continue to stimulate scientific exchange and create opportunities for new collaborations among the participants.

We are honoured to host the RNA Club meeting after one year hiatus caused by hosting the RNA Society meeting in Prague the last year.
