The promoter sets the course for transcription termination

FMI News Article
Helge Grosshans and his group at the Friedrich Miescher Institute for Biomedical Research (FMI) have identified two distinct modes of transcription termination – one dependent on, and one independent of, the highly conserved exoribonuclease XRN2. In a fruitful collaboration between wet-lab and computational biologists, they found that the promoter of a gene determines the mechanism for termination of its transcription.
