RNA is the intermediary that translates DNA blueprints into proteins that build cells.

Understanding RNA is necessary for learning about the biology of an animal.

Researchers extracted RNA from a desiccated Tasmanian tiger that died about 130 years ago.

They also found a never-before-described sequence of microRNA that plays a regulatory role in gene expression.
