According to this press release by the University of Warwick, researchers have discovered the ability to program a common molecule found in cells to alter their behaviour.
As well as fighting disease and injury in humans, scientists could harness this technique to control plant cells and reverse environmental and agricultural issues, making plants more resilient to disease and pests.
RNAs carry information between protein and DNA in cells, and Professor Jaramillo has proved that these molecules can be produced and organised into tailor-made sequences of commands - similar to codes for computer software - which feed specific instructions into cells, programming them to do what we want.
