RNAtrain is a European RNA training network devoted to educating the next generation of European researchers in the field of non-coding RNA (ncRNA) biology.
We focus on the functions and importance of ncRNAs in multidisciplinary projects in which the ncRNAs are studied in the context of development, differentiation and disease. We are developing projects that span from the identification of relevant ncRNAs in selected model systems, over functional annotation of ncRNAs in high throughput screening approaches to a range of biochemical and genetic functional analyses.
We are a group of 9 top-quality European Research laboratories and 2 companies from 8 countries comprising both private and public institutions
RNA-TRAIN is funded by the Marie Curie initiatives of the European Commission. The network started October 1st, 2013 and will be active for four years.
