Crop improvement and resistance to pathogens benefits from non-coding RNA ...
EurekAlert (press release)
Non-coding RNAs can be classified into two major groups: small non-coding RNA (siRNAs, miRNAs, and piRNAs) with a length of 20-30 nucleotides and long non-coding RNAs with a length of more than 200 nucleotides. Advances in honing non-coding ...

The functional role of long non-coding RNAs and epigenetics - 7thSpace Interactive (press release)

The functional role of long non-coding RNAs and epigenetics
7thSpace Interactive (press release)
Long non-coding RNAs (lncRNAs) are non-protein coding transcripts longer than 200 nucleotides. The post-transcriptional regulation is influenced by these lncRNAs by interfering with the microRNA pathways, involving in diverse cellular processes.

Recently Discovered Form of RNA Codes For Proteins
Design & Trend
Deep transcriptome sequencing has revealed the existence of many transcripts that lack conserved open reading frames (ORFs), which have been termed long non-coding RNA (IncRNA). The vast majority of lncRNAs are lineage-specific and do not yet have ...
