What are MicroRNAs and what do they do?


MicroRNAs are small non-coding single-stranded RNA molecules MicroRNAs (miRNAs) are small non-coding single-stranded RNA molecules consisting of approximately 21 to 22 nucleotides that regulate posttranscriptional gene expression in metazoans and plants. miRNAs are usually generated from noncoding regions of gene… Read More ›

Tales of Genes and Proteins


Implications of the Human Genome Project The human genome project revealed that the human genome contains approximately 26,000 to 38,000 genes that code for proteins. This is significantly fewer than had been previously anticipated. It was found that protein-coding sequences… Read More ›
