Welcome to the homepage of the RNA Club Zurich, which was founded to promote the interaction and collaboration of local research groups and individuals studying any aspect of RNA biology.

On this page you will find a calendar highlighting upcoming events, news and announcements, such as synopses of recent papers published by our participating labs, special seminar announcements, conference alerts and any other bit of information that might be of interest to our members. Please visit our seminar page for details about our monthly work discussion meeting, or check out our non-work-related activities. If you would like to find out more about us and our research, please have a look at our members page or browse through the projects database. In the resources section, we provide links, protocols and other information that should be useful for RNA research. For any inquiries or suggestions regarding this homepage or the RNA Club in general, please see the contact page.

You can subscribe to an RSS news feed, which will keep you updated about changes to the website. To subscribe just follow this link or copy and add it to your preferred RSS feed reader.
