Non-coding RNAs, including long non-coding RNAs and different classes of small RNAs are new players both in the organization of nuclear structures and in the regulation of epigenetic processes. During the one-day symposium, we will discuss how non-coding RNAs can regulate gene expression and chromatin organization during development, and their functions in epigenetic inheritance.
