Molecular biology fills gaps in knowledge of bat evolution

...nd Biodiversity Research, Kent, U.K. "The present work advances our understanding of where bats originated, when they diversified and how different bat families are related to each other," Springer said. "It also quantifies the fraction of the fossil record that is missing for bats." The team, using DNA...

A new mechanism of regulating RNA degradation

...that many of the tools cells use to regulate genes work after transcription, by moderating the activity and the life span of the RNA itself. One major pathway for such post-transcriptional regulation is called nonsense-mediated decay (NMD). Originally NMD was thought to destroy incorrectly transcribed or...
