Long non-coding RNA genes give away some of their secrets

A group of researchers coordinated by Alex Tuck from Marc Bühler’s lab wanted to learn more about the role of long non-protein-coding RNAs (lncRNAs); these eukaryotic RNAs lacking protein-coding potential were first described about 15 years ago, but still little is known about their biological significance. The new FMI study not only provides more clarity about the mechanisms by which lncRNAs work, it also offers new tools to further experiment with this special type of RNA – and it represents a nice example of collaboration.
