Article Correctness Is Author's Responsibility: Scientists develop new method to distinguish freshly made transcripts from old transcripts

(Hubrecht Institute) Researchers from the group of Alexander van Oudenaarden at the Hubrecht Institute (KNAW) developed a new method to assess how production and degradation of gene transcripts are regulated. In this study, published in Science on the 6th of March, they found that cells use distinct strategies to control the number of transcript copies, which is required for the cell to function properly.
