Significant strides in small regulatory RNA research in plants

Molecular biology experienced a significant shift in thinking in recent years with growing evidence that microRNAs (miRNAs) play a major role in the control of eukaryotic gene expression during development. These tiny RNAs, which have sequence complimentarity to short segments of protein-coding gene...

Hormone helps fish to mate, may affect human hearing
