Finding Small Regulatory RNAs in Alzheimerís Disease
Abundant evidence has demonstrated versatile functions of RNAs, especially non-protein coding RNAs, in eukaryotes. Some RNAs, despite their small sizes (< 200nt), can surprisingly regulate gene expressions on multiple levels. I will present some RNA discovery work in the course of Alzheimerís disease (AD) research. I will be more focused on computational predictions of small RNAs targeting ADís signature molecule BACE1.
