Mechanism of RNA Recoding (Image 1)

April 29, 2013
A new study has uncovered the rules of RNA recoding--a genetic-editing method cells use to expand the number of proteins assembled from a single DNA code. The shape a particular RNA molecule adopts determines how the molecule gets edited inside cells.
