Research output: Contribution to journalReview articlepeer-review


Two recent reports, one in Cell and one in the Journal of Molecular Biology, show that the newly described small nucleolar RNAs control the site of methylation of the ribosomal RNA (rRNA). Tollervey explains how these small RNAs accomplish this targeting and discusses the possible role of this rRNA modification.
