Community Message: Despite the suspension of most activities by the italian universities, Caryologia proceeds its activity in full, thanks to homeworking and telematic connections. The editorial staff is already beginning the second volume of 2020. Some patience may be needed due to possible difficulties by reviewers involved in COVID-19 emergency.
Particular attention will be given to research results about viruses in general, including also COVID-19. Scientific articles about these topics will be subjected to a light (but rigorous as always) peer review process in order to make scientific novelties available to the whole scientific community in this difficult moment.
Alessio Papini, Editor-in-chief of Caryologia
