bio-itworld RNA Editing Much More Widespread than Imagined

May 20, 2011 | Results published in Science yesterday suggest that the DNA-RNA-protein workflow that forms the basis of biology may not be as straightforward as we thought. Scientists found more than 10,000 points of RNA "editing" where RNA sequences did not match the DNA. The results suggest that RNA editing could account for human genetic diversity on a much larger scale than previously thought. Nature
