About the book

Noncoding RNAs (ncRNAs) have made a huge impact on RNA biology. ncRNAs play an important role in regulating gene expression in animals, plants, and various cancer types. Plant ncRNAs play a key role in development, signal transduction, response to environmental stress, and pathogen invasion. Animal and human ncRNAs differ considerably from plant ncRNAs in their biogenesis and function, and regulate cell differentiation, development, and homeostasis. Alteration of ncRNAs function results in various diseases including cancer. Since some of the ncRNAs are known to participate in all types of cancer and function as oncogenes or tumor-suppressors, they have the potential power to be researched as prognostic and diagnostic biomarkers and therapeutic molecules. Although bioinformatics plays a big part in analyzing ncRNAs, they also need to be experimentally verified in a laboratory. A range of biotechniques has been developed to overcome the challenges of ncRNA profiling including qPCR, miRNA arrays, and RNA sequencing. The rapid expansion of miRNA research accompanied by big data leads to extensive efforts in ncRNA bioinformatics and databases.

This book aims to provide an overview of current knowledge on ncRNA research through ncRNA biogenesis and mechanisms of action, cancer and human diseases, animal and plant ncRNAs, bioinformatics, and experimental techniques.
