The Future of RNA

RNA sequencing and the detection of RNA modifications have recently gained significant attention in the genomics community, punctuated by a new report from the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine (NASEM) outlining a roadmap for more completely studying and cataloging RNA and its modifications. New genomic methods and technologies are still needed to advance basic and clinical research into human biology and disease.

NASEM Consensus Study Report

This report - Charting a Future for Sequencing RNA and Its Modifications: A New Era for Biology and Medicine - outlines key focus areas where infrastructure and technology can be improved for the study of epitranscriptomes and provides conclusions and recommendations in the areas of expanding research; advancing technology; developing standards and centralizing data; and cultivating a workforce.
