The Third Warehouse of Biological Information: The RNA Code

The best-known way our cells and tissues store biological information is their genetic code, derived from the DNA sequence (Deoxyribonucleic Acid). During the last two decades, the epigenetic code has been identified as capable of controlling our DNA through a series of chemical tags. Today, an article published in Cell by Manel Esteller, coordinator of …
