RNA research at Madison thrives in many labs. RNA MaxiGroup is intended to bring those labs together to exchange ideas and methods. Presentations are without slides to encourage discussion.

Anyone interested is welcome, even if they are not particularly interested in RNA in general - graduate students, post-docs, staff and faculty.
