the big questions

Cells express an astonishing variety of mRNA transcripts from a limited pool of genes. Across tissues and even among individuals, mRNAs produced from the same gene differ at their 5’ and 3’ ends as well as throughout the transcript body, enabling the expression of numerous protein products per gene. How is transcript diversity generated through regulation of transcription and splicing?
