RNA Molecules Live Short Lives

A research group at the Biozentrum, University of Basel, has developed a new method to measure the half-life of RNA molecules. The study revealed that commonly used methods provide distorted results and that RNA molecules live an average of only two minutes, ten times shorter than previously assumed. The results have now been published in the journal „Science Advances“. (Mehr in: Pressemitteilungen – idw – Informationsdienst Wissenschaft)
