More groundbreaking research in quadruplex science! On September 1st, Genome Biology published a paper revealing that scientists have directly observed RNA quadruplex structures in nature for the first time. In July, University of Cambridge researchers directly observed DNA quadruplex structures in human cells for the first time. These studies further validate the importance of quadruplex structures in both DNA and RNA, which Reglagene’s Chief Scientific Officer Laurence Hurley has been studying for decades.
