A new ontology for discussion of RNA-cleavage reactions is now available online at the ACS Chemical Biology website. This new ontology, developed by a group of leaders in the field and lead by the York group, aims to clarify conversations on these reactions carried out by protein, RNA, and DNA enzymes by providing a standardized vocabulary. Utilization of this ontology would enable more precise interpretations of mechanisms in the context of structure and bonding.
