Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory, Cold Spring Harbor, New York
August 22 - 26, 2007

We are pleased to host the sixth Cold Spring Harbor meeting on Eukaryotic mRNA Processing, which will begin at 7:30 pm on Wednesday, August 22 and run through lunch on Sunday, August 26, 2007. The meeting will focus on the mechanisms and regulation of mRNA splicing, polyadenylation, turnover, localization and RNA interference. It will include all aspects mRNA transport, processing and control, including microRNA function. The meeting is intended to provide a format for the exchange of ideas and information, to discuss the latest research findings and technical advances, and to facilitate interaction amongst groups active in diverse systems.

Abstracts should contain only new and unpublished material and must be submitted electronically by the abstract deadline. Selection of material for oral and poster presentation will be made by the organizers and individual session chairs.
