Due to the COVID-19 situation, the EMGS Annual Meeting will remain virtual this year (https://www.emgs-us.org/blog/registration-opens-for-2021-emgs-virtual-annual-meeting). As such, the second-round competition will be held in form of webinars like last year. Stay tuned for further details about the competition and we look forward to hearing more from our Final Four in the 2021 EMGS Bioinformatics Challenge!
