New Reference Text Published – Long Non Coding RNA Biology


In recent years, our functional understanding of the genome has changed dramatically. The discovery of pervasive transcription and the prevalence of noncoding RNAs (ncRNAs) have challenged the traditional definition of genes and what should be considered a functional region of the genome. Noncoding RNAs are defined as transcripts that do not encode proteins. Formally, this classification includes components of the ...
