COVID-19: It is with considerable regret that we announce the cancellation of the upcoming CSHL meeting on Regulatory & Non-Coding RNAs because of ongoing concerns about the coronavirus outbreak. In an effort to prioritize our participants’ health while still promoting scientific exchange, we are hosting a virtual meeting, including oral sessions via Zoom, digital "poster sessions", dedicated Slack channel for discussions, and the Leading Strand archive after the conference. Please check your email for updates regarding the virtual meeting, refunds, and other important details.

The fourth meeting on Regulatory & Non-Coding RNAs is going fully virtual and will now likely commence with a 10am morning session (US Eastern Time) on Tuesday, May 12 and the meeting will end with an afternoon session (Eastern Time)on Friday, May 15.
