RNAi: Slicing, Dicing and Serving Your Cells

Video   May 12, 2017 | Original video from Ted-Ed YouTube Channel

 
 
 

RNA, the genetic messenger, makes sure the DNA recipe gives your cells exactly what they ordered. But sometimes that means inhibiting some other RNA that got the recipe wrong. This process is called RNA interference (RNAi), and it acts as a self-correcting system within the complicated genetic kitchen of your body. Alex Dainis explains the importance -- and exciting potential -- of RNAi.
