Non‑coding RNAs (ncRNAs) are involved in different cellular processes and some of them are considered to play a role in the development of numerous diseases. The recent discovery of ncRNAs is the result of several experimental and bioinformatics studies. On July 21‑23, 2021, the ‘Noncoding RNA World: From Mechanism to Therapy’ conference that was held virtually (originally planned to be held in Basel, Switzerland), gathered experts and researchers from countries worldwide to cover the latest achievements in ncRNA research, including the basic molecular mechanisms and structural biology, bioinformatics, biotechnology, disease development and therapeutics of ncRNAs. The meeting was dominated by a feeling of satisfaction and enthusiasm for the novel discoveries in the ncRNA field that is considered to be relatively new. Intriguingly, several discoveries are added daily beside numerous hurdles that are encountered or remain to be resolved in order for these findings to be translated into clinical practice.
