Submit your abstract
The IGC Symposium 2017 is organized by local postdoctoral scientists. This year the focus will be on Plant RNA Biology. Talks will cover wide range of topics from mRNA processing and modifications, through the role of RNA folding to regulation of gene expression by small RNAs and the roles of long non-coding RNAs.
Registration deadline is extended until the 6th of August. Last places!!!!
The registration fee of 100 € covers lunches, coffee breaks and refreshments during the poster sessions of the meeting.
Your registration will be finalized when we receive the payment of the registration fee.
After the registration form is completed, we will contact you with a confirmation and details of the payment. Bank transfer is our preferred method of payment.
More information about abstract submission and poster requirements can be found here. Deadline for abstract submission is 6th of August.

Instituto Gulbenkian de Ciência
The Instituto Gulbenkian de Ciência (IGC), located in Oeiras, Portugal, is a multidisciplinary institute, research programs include Cell and Developmental Biology, Evolutionary Biology, Immunology, Host-Pathogen Interactions, Disease Genetics, Plant Biology, Neurosciences, Theoretical and Computational Biology.
The IGC embraces five missions: 1) to promote multidisciplinary science of excellence in basic biological and biomedical research; 2) to identify, educate and incubate new research leaders, providing state-of-the-art facilities and full financial and intellectual autonomy; 3) to provide international graduate teaching and structured training programmes; 4) to improve the transfer of research expertise into developments that are of potential interest beyond basic science; and 5) to promote the values of science in society.
