Hello everyone!

I added a New Animation on miRna ,MicroRNAs (miRNA) are single-
stranded RNA molecules of about 21-23 nucleotides in length, which
regulate gene expression. miRNAs are encoded by genes that are
transcribed from DNA but not translated into protein (non-coding RNA);
instead they are processed from primary transcripts known as pri-miRNA
to short stem-loop structures called pre-miRNA and finally to
functional miRNA.
