6th Nucleic Acids Conference is organized by Fusion Conferences Ltd and will be held during Feb 13 - 16, 2019 at Melia Nassau Beach All Inclusive, Nassau, New Providence, Bahamas.
Conference Description :
This meeting is a continuation of the Zing Conferences Nucleic Acids series. The key role of nucleic acids is to encode and process genetic information at a molecular level. DNA is the genetic library of the cell, while RNA transports, translates and controls the expression of that information. DNA must be copied with unprecedented accuracy once every cell cycle. It is under constant endogenous and environmental onslaught, and a variety of repair pathways are necessary to maintain the integrity of the genetic blueprint. DNA is the only cellular molecule for which repair occurs to a significant extent.
DNA undergoes recombination, a kind of molecular cut and re-join that creates diversity to facilitate evolution, as well as providing an important repair pathway. In eukaryotes something like 2m DNA is packaged into chromosomes so that it packs into the cell nucleus with a diameter of just 6 µm, while remaining accessible to the cellular machinery that reads out its genetic information.
We are only just beginning the long journey of understanding what all this non-coding RNA is doing - it is very much the 'dark matter' of biology ! Lastly RNA can also accelerate chemical reactions by a million fold or more in the manner of an enzyme. This is very likely of key significance in the origin of life on the planet more than three billion years ago.
The theme of this conference is understanding processes involving DNA and RNA at the molecular and chemical level, with a marked structural and mechanistic perspective.
Additional details will be posted as soon as they are available.
