Summary This book aims to bring to the forefront a field that has been developing since the late 1990s called the STAR pathway for Signal Transduction and Activation of RNA. It is a signaling pathway that targets RNA directly; in contrast to the canonical signal - kinase cascade - transcription factor - DNA - RNA. It is proposed to allow quick responses to environment changes such as those necessary in many biological phenomenon such as the nervous system and during development
