Jewels that may help explain behavioral disorders found among 'junk' DNA
Scientists have been looking for genes to explain behavioral disorders for 20 years without much success. According to L. Alison McInnes of Mt. Sinai School of Medicine, that may be because they have concentrated their efforts in the wrong places in the genome. She has developed a successful new screen to identify locations in the genome that produce special molecules called small non-messenger RNA (smnRNA) associated with mental disorders.
