The forefront of RNA simulations

Unfortunately, the mini-symposium is cancelled due to travel restrictions faced by many of the attendees to our main RNA symposium, which was also cancelled.  We hope to re-organize this event next year!  

-Alan Chen and Paul Whitford

This one-day satellite mini-symposium is intended to bring together the RNA simulation community, with a particular emphasis on young investigators and trainees. The objective is to discuss current challenges in the field and support the development of new strategies to reveal the intricate dynamics of RNA systems. Approaches from diverse perspectives ranging from quantum, all-atom, coarse-grained, and sequence-level models will be discussed.

Anyone interested in learning about molecular simulations is encouraged to attend. In particular, students involved in computational research (both undergraduate and graduate) are encouraged to share their research in our poster session, where they will enjoy the unique experience of conversing and getting feedback from an all-computational audience.

The workshop takes place Wednesday March 18, 2020 at The RNA Institute at SUNY, Albany from 9:00 am – 3:30 pm.

Coffee/light breakfast and lunch is included for registered participants. Registration is free, please fill out the online registration form.  You do NOT need to register on the main RNA symposium website for this satellite session.

Participants are strongly encouraged (but not required) to also register for the 7th Annual Symposium on RNA Science and its Applications, held on March 19-20th at the RNA Institute. Note the main symposium is free to attend for undergraduate students.
