This jointly supported NIEHS/NHGRI virtual workshop was convened to determine the current capabilities, needs, and prospects for comprehensive characterization and understanding of the true diversity of all RNAs and their modifications at a chemical and structural level in relation to normal and disease states.
- To explore the need for “RNomics” in genomics.
- To identify what technologies are needed to sequence full-length RNAs directly capturing molecular diversity and cellular context.
- To determine what infrastructure, bioinformatics, and other resources are needed to support technology development, utilization, and validation.
- To consider the steps needed to facilitate rapid adoption of these technologies by the wider scientific community.
