RNA-binding protein deletion leads to leukaemia disease attenuation

New research led by scientists from UCLA has shown that the deletion of an RNA-binding protein can significantly increase survival […]

Reversing diabetes with a selective microRNA inhibitor

Researchers have designed a structure-specific microRNA inhibitor that selectively represses a microRNA family member, which may in turn reverse the […]

How to do RNA sequencing

RNA sequencing is an NGS technique that enables investigation of the transcriptome – the total cellular content of RNAs, including […]

RNA modifications can protect against non-alcoholic fatty liver disease

Researchers have revealed that post-transcriptional RNA modifications protect against the development of non-alcoholic fatty liver disease. This mechanism may also […]

The role of microRNAs in broken heart syndrome

Scientists from Imperial College London have identified the role of two key microRNAs in the development of broken heart syndrome. […]

Polθ: Human Cells can write RNA sequences into DNA

Researchers have discovered that mammalian cells can convert RNA sequences back into DNA using Polθ, which challenges long-believed notions surrounding polymerases. Polymerases […]

Immune stimulating long noncoding RNA involved in cancer response

Researchers have found that a long noncoding RNA, whose function was previously unknown, turns out to play an important role […]

Researchers identify glycosylated RNA

Glycosylated RNA (GlycoRNAs) prior to 2019 were not known to exist. Now, researchers have found that they are present on […]

Bacterial strains isolated from the International Space Station

Researchers have discovered three bacterial strains aboard the International Space Station that may help create the fuel to allow plants […]

Genetics Unzipped podcast: Genes and vaccines – the story of mRNA COVID-19 vaccines

Genetics Unzipped, the podcast from the Genetics Society, is back for 2021 with a new series of stories from the […]
