Circular RNAs are a newly appreciated class of ubiquitous and abundant RNAs. In the webinar, we will cover biological and chemical approaches to synthesize circular RNAs, how cells distinguish between endogenous and foreign circular RNAs, and properties of circular RNAs that make it a privileged scaffold for therapeutics. We will address current challenges in the field and future directions.
