Describe in molecular detail how RNA regulates gene expression in both prokaryotes and eukaryotes.
Describe how RNA forms higher order structures and catalyzes reactions.
Explain techniques used to study RNA and critique data obtained with these techniques.
Design properly controlled experiments using RNA to modulate gene expression to solve their own research problems.
Recognize advances in RNA research in the primary literature and synthesize several findings into a larger narrative in the form of a review paper.
