    • Inroads in R&D Advance Utility of miRNA
    • Ellyn Kerr
    • MicroRNAs—as an entirely new class of gene-expression regulators (discovered in humans in 2001)—have elicited widespread interest These noncoding, single-stranded, 20 to 25 nucleotide RNAs regulate gene expression through sequence-specific mRNA hybridization (usually at the 3´ untranslated region) and have been ... more »
    • Classic Medicine Awaits Digital Overhaul
    • Gail Dutton
    • The convergence of commercial genomic kits and electronic medical records is helping to drive the healthcare industry’s focus on personalized medicine Although it’s quite early, observers suggest this integration of technologies has the potential to change the way therapeutics are ... more »
