U-M researchers develop method that could enhance gene sequencing data When researchers sequence the RNA of cancer cells, they can compare it to normal cells and see where there is more RNA. That can help lead them to the gene or protein that might be triggering the cancer. But other than spotting a few known instigators, what does it mean? Is there more RNA because it´s synthesizing too quickly or because it´s not degrading fast enough? What part of the biological equilibrium...
