How can a small number of genes – ~21,000 in a human cell – create the anywhere between 250,000 to 1,000,000 proteins that form the essential building blocks of the human body? This is where RNA splicing comes in, and where the simple (on paper) process of DNA transcription becomes extremely complex.

Luckily Cold Spring Harbour Laboratory have partnered with Youreka Science to break down the ins and outs of RNA splicing. The result is simple, elegant, and informative!
