Our Team’s Favorite RNA Molecules

At siTOOLs we are celebrating RNA day (Aug. 1st) the entire month with a focus on all things RNA and a promotion on siPOOLs and riboPOOLs.

RNA day is celebrated the 1st of August, since the RNA codon that initiates protein synthesis is made of the following nucleotides: adenine (A), uracil (U), and guanine (G). AUG codes for the amino acid methionine (Met) in eukaryotes and formyl methionine (fMet) in prokaryotes.

RNA is one of the most versatile biomolecules in existence and the focus of siTOOLs research, so we asked the siTOOLs team which is their favorite RNA molecule.
