Thematic Issue on RNA

FEMS Microbiology Reviews has selected a series of articles that highlight some of the recent findings on RNA biology in bacteria focusing on RNA biogenesis, modes of action, regulatory mechanisms and functions. The continuous effort to adapt innovative technologies and biological approaches to the bacterial RNA field has advanced our understanding of how regulatory RNAs and their interacting partners function and cooperate in the cell to fine-tune gene expression in response to changing environmental conditions and stresses and thereby affect the physiology of bacteria at multiple levels.

Guest editors: Emmanuelle Charpentier & Wolfgang Hess
