Recent discoveries of biological functions for Z-conformations have demonstrated important roles in immunity against infectious agents and cancers. More generally, research on Z-conformations underscore the impact of alternative RNA and DNA conformations in both normal cellular function and disease. They further emphasize that regulatory information is encoded by structure in addition to sequence.
We are excited to announce the second rendition of the “ABZ Meeting” (A, B and Z: The Structure, Function and Genetics of Z-DNA and Z-RNA). This year we split the conference into two sessions. The meetings are virtual, held in two legs. The first was held on
The program of the second leg of the 'ABZ Meeting 2022' virtually held on September 7th is here!
We congratulate the ABZ Meeting 2021 winners of a free RNA Society membership:
