Member Spotlight





RNA is a monthly, international, peer-reviewed publication that provides rapid communication of significant original research in all areas of RNA structure and function–in eukaryotic, prokaryotic, and viral systems. The journal aims to unify this field by cutting across established disciplinary lines and focusing on “RNA-centered” science. It is published by CSHL Press for the RNA Society, and is available both in print and on-line through Society membership, individual subscription, or institutional subscription. Manuscript submissions are not restricted to Society members, but are welcomed from any member of the RNA scientific community.
