Hymenolepis microstoma MicroRNAs

Jerome Hui and Matthew Ronshaugen (University of Manchester) have recently agreed to characterize the MicroRNAs of Hymenolepis microstoma for us! These short, interfering species of non-protein-coding RNA are post-transcriptional regulators of gene expression and their characterization will allow us to locate target sites in the genome, including those associated with the 3’ UTRs of the Hox genes.
