The Evolution and Specificity of RNA Splicing

Abstract

The majority of human genes are not encoded in contiguous segments in the genome but are rather punctuated by long interruptions known as introns. These introns are copied from generation to generation, and even from cell to cell as a person grows from an embryo into an adult. Each time a gene is activated, the cell must first accurately excise all the… (More)
