For RNA polymerase to successfully bind to a eukaryotic promoter and initiate transcription, a set of proteins called transcription factors must first assemble on the promoter.The assembly process begins upstream from the transcription start site, where proteins called basal
Long non-coding RNA
The genome sequence has allowed us to map which regions of our genome associated with human disease. Surprisingly, the efforts to map human genetic diversity have pointed to many regions of DNA previously considered "junk DNA" as critical for human health. Junk DNA comprises approximately 95% of our genome that doesn't encode for protein genes that have been the predominant focus of modern medicine.
