Item description for microRNA: Biology, Function & Expression (Nuts & Bolts series) (Nuts & Bolts series) by Neil J. Clarke; Philippe Sanseau...
Providing a comprehensive overview of a fast-emerging field, this description of the biological role of microRNAs discusses methods for identifying and characterizing their functions and looks at potential applications of microRNA research in medicine and pharmacology. First identified a decade ago, microRNAs (miRNAs) are small, noncoding RNA molecules that appear to regulate gene expression. Found in plant and animal species and possibly traceable back to ancient forms of life, miRNAs are now estimated to regulate a third or more of human genes.

MicroRNA book with a low quality presentation May 15, 2008
I bouth this book to understand the concept of MicroRNA. The book content is good enogh to be able to follow but the figures and tables poorly presented. Overall, I DON'T RECOMENT THIS BOOK TO PURCHASE. Omid Ansari, PhD
