MicroRNAs (miRNAs) are post-transcriptional regulators that silence gene expression by binding mainly to untranslated regions in the 3' end of the target messenger RNA transcripts. This session will be useful for any researcher who wants to investigate miRNA's in detail. Topics covered include basic techniques for miRNA isolation, expression profiling and validation, as well as their functional analysis in mammalian cells.
