Re-learning how to read a genome

10 noviembre 2014

There are roughly 20,000 genes and thousands of other regulatory ‘elements’ stored within our DNA. Somehow all of this coded information needs to be read and transcribed into messages that can be used by cells. New research has revealed that the initial steps of the reading process are actually remarkably similar at both genes and regulatory elements. The main differences seem to occur after the initial step, in the length and stability of the messages.
