Essays in Biochemistry
We are delighted to announce that in the recent Thomson Reuters 2011 Journal Citation Reports, Essays in Biochemistry received an increased Impact Factor of 3.714 confirming its status as an important educational resource.
The Essays in Biochemistry series provides undergraduates and first year postgraduates with a single source of information on the latest research in rapidly moving areas of biochemistry and molecular biology. Each chapter is written by an expert on the area of research and is a self-contained summary of the state-of-the-art of that topic.

Less than 2% of the bases in the human genome code for proteins, therefore the remainder is classified as non-coding RNA. Initially thought of as transcriptional noise, it is now believed that a significant proportion of non-coding RNA may be involved in fundamental cellular processes. The most well known is the microRNA family, which regulates the stability and translation of protein-coding transcripts through the RNA interference pathway. This volume of Essays in Biochemistry looks at the rapidly emerging area of non-coding RNA, covering each of the major non-coding RNA families. Each chapter examines the mechanisms that regulate the transcription of these non-coding RNA, and discusses their biological function and possible links to the development of disease.
