New Research Shows microRNAs Quiet Genomic Noise | GenomeWeb

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb) – While the physiological function of some microRNAs has been established, especially in cases where they strongly downregulate specific genes, the broader purpose of the small, non-coding RNAs has been unclear. New research published this week, however, indicates that miRNAs act as genomic noise dampeners, controlling variability in protein expression.
