        The RNA Enigma

        Learn about the versatility of RNA in this video from NOVA’s RNA Lab. Animations explore the differences between RNA and DNA and illustrate examples of functions that RNA can perform. As new folding patterns are discovered, RNA could be used to prevent diseases such as cancer or HIV. In addition, an overview of the RNA Lab shows how users can help scientists by desigining RNA molecules that fold into specific shapes.
