Michal was a part of the RNA, Transcription and Repair Session at the 5th DNA Repair/Replication Structures and Cancer Conference on April 29th where he discussed our latest work on RNA primer removal in human mitochondria.
The 5th DNA Repair/Replication Structures & Cancer conference focused on structural and mechanistic insights into dynamic complexes acting in DNA repair and its interface with replication, transcription and other cancer-relevant transactions. This fundamental information will be pivotal for the accurate interpretation of cancer clinical data, design of clinical trials, prognosis, etiology and improving the currently 1/20 low success rate for oncology drug clinical trials. Informative talks and poster sessions along with vibrant discussions will foster productive interactions, collaborations, and insights.
Plenary speakers included Steve Kowalczykowski (University of California, Davis) and Titia Sixma (Netherlands Cancer Institute).
