                   Although it is still commonplace to speak of ²genes and their encoded protein products", thousands of human genes produce transcripts that exert their function without ever producing proteins. Recent transcriptome analysis and different experimental approaches have identified a surprisingly large number of non-coding RNAs (ncRNAs) in eukaryotic cells. miRNAs are small ncRNAs that have critical functions in various biological processes by controlling protein concentrations at post-transcriptional and translational levels.  I am interested in addressing the mechanistic details of differential processing of a clustered pri-miR-17-92a transcript modulated by its structure.
