Researchers unlock another piece of the RNA sequencing puzzle.

Now, a study from researchers at Rockefeller University and Columbia University has identified a protein that recognizes a chemical instruction tag affixed to an RNA sequence, an important step in the decision-making process. The team state that their findings help to explain how the destiny of an RNA sequence is achieved. The opensource study is published in the journal Cell.
