Meeting 2021

We would like to (re-)invite you to our rescheduled conference of the GBM study group “RNA Biochemistry”, which will be held from October 21-23 2021. Unfortunately, our booked venue would have only allowed 50 guests in October and the development of the “Delta-variant wave” remains hard to predict. Therefore, we decided to opt for a virtual format using Zoom (live talks between 1 pm and 6 pm) and SpatialChat (two poster sessions).

We will host a workshop on the topic “RNA tertiary structure” on October 22nd with speakers Eric Westhof, Janusz Bujnicki, Rhiju Das and Blake Sweeney (RNAcentral).

We are also delighted that the following speakers agreed to give talks: Neva Caliskan, Jeffrey Chao, Beatrice Clouet d’Orval, Sebastien Ferreira-Cerca, Sebastian Leidel, Marina Rodnina (Albrecht-Kossel-Preis) and Malcolm White.

We encourage everybody (including researchers at the beginning of their career!) to apply for a talk or a poster presentation. To do so, please submit an abstract before 15.9.2021 with the following information:

  • Title
  • Authors and address
  • Summary (max. 300 words)
  • max. 2 references
  • font: Arial 11
    Please send your abstract to

Please save the new date, stay healthy and see you soon!
