MicroRNAs are small, noncoding RNA molecules that direct post-transcriptional suppression of gene expression. Because of their small size and specificity, the study of mature miRNA and other classes of small RNA requires specialized tools and techniques. Here we will discuss the latest in miRNA research, from isolation, profiling, quantitation and validation to functional analysis. Advantages of using TaqMan® technology for expression profiling and targeted quantification and the newest TaqMan® Advanced miRNA Assays will be discussed.
