Supported by the Molecular Foundations for Biotechnology program, researchers will explore RNA's roles and actions with the goal of using them to create new RNA-based methods for treating cancerous cells, making agricultural crops more resistant to blight and disease, fighting viral infections like the common cold, and more. The program is a joint effort of the U.S. National Science Foundation in partnership with the National Institutes of Health's National Human Genome Research Institute.
