A non-coding gene’s neighbors reveal what it does for a “living.” The findings may pave the way to developing therapies for epilepsy and autism...

Researchers identify a "switch" that is only active when nerves are injured

Humans and fish share about 70% of their protein-coding genes, but only about 0.5% of their regulatory long noncoding RNAs (lncRNAs)

How some genes lost the ability to make proteins - and gained regulatory powers 

We share many of our genes with sea urchins, but none of the sequences for long non-coding RNAs that regulate those genes

Non-coding DNA sequences on an evolutionary “fast track” may hold clues to human disease
