The topic of RNA processing is such an enormous one that it not infrequently has a whole meeting devoted to it. It is also a field in which explosive progress has been made, particularly toward a better understanding of eukaryotic RNA processing since the discovery of splicing. This overview, based on a minisymposium presented at the 1981 ASBC meeting, therefore attempts to present some recent advances in our understanding of RNA processing, particularly splicing, against a background of current views of the pathways of processing of different kinds of RNA molecules in both prokaryotic and eukaryotic cells.
