The Tenth International Conference on Computational Molecular Biology "MCCMB 2021" is over
The Moscow Conference on Computational Molecular Biology (MCCMB) is a biennial forum in various areas of bioinformatics, systems biology, and molecular evolution. Since 2003, it traditionally takes place in Moscow, but despite its "local" title, it is an international conference attended by scientists from many countries, and invited talks are given by leaders in the field. The working language of the conference is English.
This year MCCMB'21 was held both online and offline. The RCMG Laboratory of Functional Genomics researchers made their presentations:
- Alexandra Filatova spoke about the search and analysis of upstream reading frames located in the 5' untranslated regions of genes and about the molecular mechanisms of hereditary diseases due to pathogenic variants located in these frames. (Alexandra Yu. Filatova. Disruption of uORFs translation is an underestimated cause of Mendelian disorders. Moscow Conference on Computational Molecular Biology (MCCMB), July 30th — August 2nd, 2021. Moscow.)
- Mikhail Skoblov made a presentation on the genome-wide search for nucleotide sequence variants that can differentially affect splicing depending on the genomic background. (Mikhail Skoblov. Genome-wide search for pathogenic splice variants manifested in different genetic backgrounds. Moscow Conference on Computational Molecular Biology (MCCMB), July 30th — August 2nd, 2021. Moscow.)
