Long noncoding RNAs and the genetics of cancer

lncRNA

Cancer is a disease of aberrant gene expression. While the genetic causes of cancer have been intensively studied, it is becoming evident that a large proportion of cancer susceptibility cannot be attributed to variation in protein-coding sequences. This is highlighted by genome-wide association studies in cancer that reveal that more than 80% of cancer-associated SNPs occur in noncoding regions of ...
