4th International Caparica Conference in SPLICING 2021

26th – 29th July 2021 | Caparica | Portugal

Dear Colleagues and friends

It is estimated that 30% of diseases caused by mutations can be linked to splicing. Mutation of a splice site can result in site loss of function and specificity, causing insertion or deletion of aminoacids or a disruption of the reading frame. The importance of understanding and properly decoding roles governing splicing have become a fact for the research community as demonstarted by the increasing number of manuscripts devoted to this subject. Splicing 2021 intends to join in a friendly academic environment all of us working or interested in moving to this area of research. The conference will take place in summer in one of the best beach areas from Portugal, the sea village of Caparica (South Lisbon area). We aim you to present your latest results in Splicing and to join the best researchers in this area of knowledge. Please do not hesitate in contacting me should you have any suggestion to help us make of this event a remarkable one.

 

Yours truly

Hotel Aldeia dos Capuchos

Be aware of cold calls from Convention Hotel Services (CHS) or from someone named Adam Max! A company called CHS (Convention Hotel Services) is calling or e-mailing attendees of conferences worldwide, claiming to work for the conference organizers and asking for credit card details to finalize the booking of accommodation. If you receive such a call or e-mail, do not give away any personal information or credit card details! None of the parties involved in the organization of SPLICING 2021 is working with CHS

We have received some alerts from participants this week regarding this email: Ehotel Services via DocuSign <dse_NA3@docusign.net>.

If you receive such a call or e-mail, do not give away any personal information or credit card details! This problem affects many conferences, not only the PROTEOMASS BIOSCOPE conferences.

We look forward to seeing you soon.

With kindest regards

The PROTEOMASS BIOSCOPE Team
