The “febit science lounge” presents: Webinar About Role of Non-Protein-Coding RNA in Human Genome Set for 11 a.m. EDT on June 12

“The human genome as an RNA machine” with Prof. John Mattick, Australia
(PresseBox) (LEXINGTON, Mass. (USA), and HEIDELBERG, Germany, ) febit holding gmbh today unveiled plans for the first of a series of educational Webinars geared for genomics researchers worldwide.

Moderated by febit's chief scientific officer, Peer Staehler, the first Webinar, which is set for 11 a.m. EDT on June 12, will feature John Mattick, Ph.D., a world-renowned researcher whose focus is the role of non-protein-coding ("junk") RNA in relation to the evolution and development of complex organisms.

"Genetic information that programs complex organisms lie in non-protein coding RNA," said Dr. Mattick, foundation professor of molecular biology and director of the Centre for Molecular Biology and Biotechnology, with the Institute for Molecular Bioscience at the University of Queensland, Australia. "This massive hidden network of regulatory information directs the precise patterns of gene expression during growth and development."

Mr. Staehler added: "This educational Webinar for the genomics researchers is the first of many to come. The team at febit is dedicated to support researchers to solve the challenge of understanding biological processes."
