RNA, BERKELEY, MAY 29- JUNE 03, 2018
The RNA Society is pleased to invite you to its 23rd annual meeting, to be held in Berkeley, California from May 29 to June 3, 2018. As before, the meeting aims to bring together the community of RNA scientists and showcase the cutting edge of RNA science. The meeting will take place on the campus of the University of California, Berkeley. Berkeley is an academic capital on the West Coast of the United States and will be a vibrant background for our meeting. Berkeley is also a short subway ride from the cosmopolitan city of San Francisco, and provides a base to explore the Bay Area and iconic national parks such as Sequoia and Yosemite. San Francisco is a large hub for international flights. Oakland and San Jose airports provide additional travel options. The U.C., Berkeley campus has modern, comfortable dormitory suites, which will offer an affordable alternative to the many excellent hotels in the San Francisco Bay Area.
