RNA

In this presentation and discussion moderated by Whitehead Institute Member Pulin Li, hear what Whitehead Fellows Silvia Rouskin and Kipp Weiskopf are learning about SARS-CoV-2 — and how their research may aid in the fight against dangerous coronaviruses, now and well into the future.

Whitehead Institute researchers advance the predictive model for the influence of microRNAs on gene expression in a cell. Their findings illustrate that high-, medium-, and low-affinity microRNA target sites unexpectedly vary between different microRNAs, and that in some cases they include imperfectly matched sequences.
