Life on earth likely emerged from a self-replicating RNA molecule billions of years ago but we still live very much in an RNA world. Ribonucleic acid or RNA is the only direct product of the genomes of all living organisms. Initially understood mostly as an intermediate between genes and proteins, the molecular machines of life, it is now clear that RNA is a major substrate of cellular computation and decision making. This talk will focus on many facets of RNA biology: from viruses to epigenetic inheritance.
