The evolution of lncRNA repertoires and expression patterns in tetrapods

lncRNA

Only a very small fraction of long noncoding RNAs (lncRNAs) are well characterized. The evolutionary history of lncRNAs can provide insights into their functionality, but the absence of lncRNA annotations in non-model organisms has precluded comparative analyses. Here researchers at the University of Lausanne, Switzerland present a large-scale evolutionary study of lncRNA repertoires and expression patterns, in 11 tetrapod species. ...
