A novel long non-coding RNA Myolinc regulates myogenesis

lncRNA

Myogenesis is a complex process required for skeletal muscle formation during embryonic development and for regeneration and growth of myofibers in adults. Accumulating evidence suggests that long non-coding RNAs (lncRNAs) play key roles in regulating cell fate decision and function in various tissues. However, the role of lncRNAs in the regulation of myogenesis remains poorly understood. In this study, researchers ...

Logic programming to infer complex RNA expression patterns from RNA-seq data

lncRNA

To meet the increasing demand in the field, numerous long noncoding RNA (lncRNA) databases are available. Given many lncRNAs are specifically expressed in certain cell types and/or time-dependent manners, most lncRNA databases fall short of providing such profiles. Researchers at the University of Louisville have developed a strategy using logic programming to handle the complex organization of organs, their tissues ...
