DNA found outside genes plays largely unknown, potentially vital roles: Thousands of previously unknown RNA molecules identified

 "The researchers found that about 85 percent of these stretches of non-coding DNA make RNA, a molecule that increasingly is being found to play important roles within cells. They also determined that this RNA-making DNA is more likely than other non-gene DNA regions to be associated with inherited disease risks."
