Endogenous small interfering RNAs (siRNAs) are a class of naturally occuring regulatory RNAs found in fungi, plants, and animals. Some endogenous siRNAs are required to silence transposons or function in chromosome segregation; however, the specific roles of most endogenous siRNAs are unclear. The helicase gene eri-6/7 was identified in the nematode(More)
S tudents in any life science course have undoubtedly learned about the genetic code that is shared by all life on Earth. The course professor probably presented three key rules for the translation of messenger RNA to proteins: mRNA uses codons, groupings of three nucleotides, to code for amino acids; codons are read sequentially and do not overlap; and one(More)
