This breakthrough underscores the importance of RNA sequencing in gaining insights into cellular behaviour and its implications for various industries.

MBM Commercial has provided legal advice to Wobble Genomics since its spinout from the University of Edinburgh in 2021. As Dr Nicola Broughton, Chair of Wobble Genomics, noted:
