How genes are permanently silenced by small RNAs

Marc Bühler and his team at the Friedrich Miescher Institute for Biomedical Research (FMI) have elucidated the mechanism underlying small RNA-mediated gene silencing, thus solving a mystery which has been puzzling the research community for over a decade. Their findings, published today in Nature, have great potential for applications in various fields. Read more
