Study of Fruit Fly MicroRNA Unravels Clues to Aging

Diseases like Alzheimer’s and Huntington’s are often associated with aging, but the biological link between the two is less certain.  Researchers at Rutgers University–Camden are seeking insight into this connection by studying very small RNA molecules in the common fruit fly. “As the flies in our experiment age, we’re able to detect specific patterns of […]
