Exploring the wild unknowns of gene regulation

One day, long ago,
RNA learned how to move,
and so life began.
— Harry Noller

RNA is to DNA what photocopies are to precious books in library stacks. An abridged reproduction with a temporary existence. Mailed out from the library to the rest of the wild world. Packaged—with a stamp, an envelope and special instructions. 

Similarly, myriad proteins dress the naked messenger RNA, protecting it from exonucleases and directing its cytoplasmic fate. These so-called mRNA-protein complexes (mRNPs) are fascinating, diverse creatures, and understanding them lies at the heart of our exploration.
