Newly discovered non-coding genes control critical disease processes

Researchers from the Broad Institute of Harvard and MIT and Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center have discovered a vast new class of previously unrecognized mammalian genes that do not encode proteins, but instead function as long RNA molecules. The findings, appearing in the journal Nature, show that these “large intervening non-coding RNAs” (lincRNAs) play critical […]
