Transmission of genetic information is not a top-down process but rather a dialogue between DNA and RNA. Long and short non-protein-coding RNAs have recently emerged as important mediators of the genomic readout. The input of non-protein-coding RNAs is essential to shaping transcriptional output and correlates with organismal complexity. Moreover, interruption of RNA-mediated feedback perturbs gene expression and can result in human disease.
