NCCR RNA & Disease


NCCR RNA & Disease   link

The NCCR RNA & Disease - The Role of RNA Biology in Disease Mechanisms - studies a class of molecules that has long been neglected: RNA (ribonucleic acid) is pivotal for many vital processes and much more complex than initially assumed. For instance, RNA defines the conditions, in a given cell, under which a given gene is or is not activated. If any part of this process of genetic regulation breaks down or does not run smoothly, this can cause heart disease, cancer, brain disease and metabolic disorders.
