Long Non-Coding RNAs Epigenetically Modify Brain and Behavior

Once considered vestiges of our evolutionary history associated with junk DNA, non-coding RNAs have emerged as important regulators of epigenetic processes, transcriptional activation, and posttranscriptional gene silencing. Advances in RNA sequencing (RNA-seq) technology have resulted in the discovery of a large number of long non-coding RNAs (lncRNAs), with many expressed …
