A novel strategy to sort functional from non-functional RNA

The human genome is promiscuously transcribed yielding RNA from >75% of its DNA. It is presently intensely debated how much of this material is functional. Danish researchers have devised a method to help address this problem.

Unlocking the secrets of Methuselah?

Some organisms can live for thousands of years, while we humans may achieve at the most 100-120 years. Researchers are delving into the cells of plants and humans to explore what it is that makes the difference.
