asynchronous RNA

Recommended Posts

Asynchronous is a word commonly used in computer science to describe the process of the computer handling operations in sequence. As opposed to synchronous or happening all at the same time.

 

When applied to an example consists of a series of base pairs.

 

Rna = ACGUACGUACGU

 

There are two ways that these base pairs could be processed.

 

Asynchronous = read say x number of pairs then do something with that info

 

or

 

Synchronous = read all base pairs and do something with that info.

 

There is a theory that this process actually happens asynchronously.
