3–6 September 2017 7th Cambridge Symposium on Nucleic Acids Chemistry and Biology

Queens' College, Cambridge, UK

An international, residential meeting to be held at historic Queens' College in the heart of Cambridge with on-site accommodation and excellent auditorium, poster and exhibition areas. This is the 7th in a popular conference series going back to 1981 that brings together nucleic acids scientists across a broad area but with particular emphasis on chemistry and biochemistry.

Subject Areas
Nucleic acids as therapeutics (including antisense, RNAi, aptamers, immune recognition, cell delivery)
RNA and DNA structures and their protein complexes (duplexes, quadruplexes, RNA and DNA enzymes, riboswitches, protein complexes + assemblies)
Nucleic acids chemistry applied to cells and cell mechanisms (genomes, evolution, repair, cell manipulation)
Nucleic acids as tools, structural assemblies and devices (nanostructures, cages, arrays, supra-molecular chemistry)

Abstracts
The call for oral and poster abstracts is open.
