RNA Club Berlin is a Seminar series aimed at includig all RNA research groups in Berlin and to providing opportunities to exchange expertise throughout the community. 

Seminars take place monthly. If you want to join the RNA Club Berlin or want to present your research please contact us.

The current series is supported by the RNA society and sponsored by Lexogen, the following are coming up:
