Escherichia coli K-12 substr. MG1655 Gene-Ontology-Terms Class: GO:0009451 - RNA modification

Synonyms: GO:0016547

Definition: The covalent alteration of one or more nucleotides within an RNA molecule to produce an RNA molecule with a sequence that differs from that coded genetically.

The term 'RNA editing' (GO:0016547) was merged into 'RNA modification' (GO:0009451) on the basis of statements in the preface of Modification and Editing of RNA (ISBN:1555811337) that there is no clear distinction between modification and editing.
