This dissertation concerns studies of plant viroid RNA and other RNA species of unusual function. By "RNA species of unusual function" we mean RNA species which do not function as transfer, ribosomal or messenger RNA. In the studies to be reported here we have laid the experimental and theoretical foundation for investigating the role of RNA in the control of gene expression.
