EURASNET, the EU-funded Network of Excellence on Alternative Splicing, hosted a conference on the mechanisms, physiological importance and disease-associations of alternative splicing in Krakow.

The conference featured 17 international invited speakers who are experts in the biochemistry, genomics, cell biology and clinical aspects of alternative splicing. A highlight of the meeting was a keynote lecture by Professor Joan Steitz. In addition, short oral presentations were invited from selected participants based on submitted abstracts.
