The RNA revolution

"For more than half a century the fundamental story of living things has been a tale of the interplay between genes, in the form of DNA, and proteins, which the genes encode and which do the donkey work of keeping living organisms living. The past couple of years, however, have seen the rise and rise of a third type of molecule, called RNA." ... The Economist, June 2007.

We are developing computational tools to help improve our understanding of how genomes act to regulate their production of RNA.
