I keep bumping into talks, articles and stuff related to the Bioinformatics of RNAs. It certainly looks appealing. I am not sure though what the fuss is about or whether it is as exciting as the DNA field. The promise of the Next Gen Sequencing and its impact in Science, Policy and Society are expected to be significant in the near future. Why should I care about RNAs though?
Here is a list of questions that I throw into the wild hoping to attract the attention of any experts in the field.
- Does any recent RNA breakthrough have the same potential to transform Society as DNA research is doing?
- Is RNA Bioinformatics an area that is appealing because not a lot of people are working on it? Or has it been fuelled by a new technique that is revolutionising it?
- Is the rate of accumulation of RNA data as steep as its DNA cousin?
- What are RNA research trends to watch out for?
The debate is open.
