The Challenge of Monitoring Biodiversity

Tue, 04 Aug 2015 14:12:04 +0000

a guest blog by Charlie Outhwaite, written for the 2015 Write About Research Competition. Biological diversity, or biodiversity, is a complex term encompassing the variety of life found on Earth. It incorporates not only differences between species but within species themselves and of the environments and ecosystems where they are found. We as humans benefit […]

Quantitative Analysis of Fission Yeast Transcriptomes and Proteomes in Proliferating and Quiescent Cells

Samuel Marguerat, Alexander Schmidt, Sandra Codlin, Wei Chen, Ruedi Aebersold, and Jürg Bähler

This article reports cellular numbers for all RNAs and most proteins in proliferating and non-dividing cells of fission yeast. Most mRNAs are expressed at only 1-10 copies/cell, while corresponding proteins show greater abundance and range, from less than 100 to over 1 million copies/cell. Only a minority of long non-coding RNAs are expressed at >1 copy/cell. In the smaller non-dividing cells, the protein content changes substantially and RNA concentrations greatly decrease. These RNA and protein concentrations inform about cell regulation and function.
