About this book

Reflecting the rapid progress in the field, the book presents the current understanding of molecular mechanisms of post-transcriptional gene regulation thereby focussing on RNA processing mechanisms in eucaryotic cells. With chapters on mechanisms as RNA splicing, RNA interference, MicroRNAs, RNA editing and others, the book also discusses the critical role of RNA processing for the pathogenesis of a wide range of human diseases.

Biography

Dr. Jane Y. Wu is the Charles Louis Mix Professor in Neurology at Lurie Cancer Center and the Center for Genetic Medicine of Northwestern University in Chicago, USA. Having obtained her degree from Stanford Univeristy and postdoctoral training at Harvard University, Dr. Wu has been studying molecular mechanisms underlying pre-mRNA splicing and neurodevelopment/degeneration, both linking basic biology to human diseases.
