I see what you did here…Now.

Recently, NPR published an article showcasing scientist Samie Jaffrey et al. and the work they’ve been doing in capturing biological processes as they unfold using reflective tags on RNA. As the process within a cell is hard to track due to light restrictions, this form of visualization will allow scientists to see how precisely RNA contributes to certain biological processes, and these processes can even be recorded in real time. Things such as RNA utilizing viruses and RNA dependent processes can now potentially be examined more closely, possibly resulting in more effective ways to treat disease. Expect more technology to come out of luminescence and biological examination, it has been, and will continue to be a highly valuable process within science.
