An RNA TREAT for Halloween

Jeff Chao, Junior group leader at the FMI, and his group developed a sophisticated method to measure mRNA degradation in single cells. They developed a fluorescent biosensor that allows the distinction of intact transcripts and degradation intermediates. This novel method, known as TREAT, nicely complements the method they developed earlier, called TRICK, that measures protein translation. Read more
