The 10th SifrARN 2016 Meeting was held in Toulouse from 8 to 10 March 2016 at the Pierre-Paul Riquet Convention Center and was organized by Béatrice Clouet d'Orval, LMGM, UMR5100, Toulouse and Pierre-Emanuel Gleizes, LBME, UMR5099, Toulouse.

This 10th edition of SifrARN has focused more particularly on the concept of guide RNA: from molecular functions to synthetic biology.

This theme was the occasion to celebrate the 20 years of the discovery of the mode of action of the small RNA C / D or H / ACA by teams of Toulouse.A series of plenary lectures was organized around this theme.

Four prestigious conferences were given by:

  • Tamás Kiss, LBME Toulouse
