PhD Exit Seminar - TRUEE; a bioinformatic pipeline to define the functional microRNA targetome of plants »

3.30pm 1 July

In plants, microRNAs (miRNAs) are short non-coding RNAs of approximately 20-24 nt in length which are involved in post-transcriptional regulation of genes controlling many fundamental biological pathways.
