One central hypothesis of molecular biology is that a protein sequence can be deduced from the DNA sequence. However, diverse processes at the DNA, mRNA, and even protein level can lead to protein sequences that differ from the deduced sequence. One such process is coor post-transcriptional RNA editing. RNA editing is found in all domains of life and in diverse RNA species from bacteria and archaea as well as plastids, mitochondria, and nuclei of eukaryotes [1, 2, 3, 4] . This review will give
