Despite all the efforts against it, Sci-Hub grew: currently there are > 400,000 visitors daily, reaching more than half a million sometimes.
Biologically uniformed theorists who use subscription-based services to access publications should try to stay calm after reading: Keep calm and carry on: miRNA biogenesis under stress 4/26/19 doi: 10.1111/tpj.14369
The light-activated assembly of the miRNA-RNA-peptide nanocomplex and
…the miRNA pathway as a whole is subject to regulation in response to external stimulus. In this review, we discuss the current knowledge about the miRNA pathway.
Collaboration among researchers from Argentina and Korea linked the creation of anti-entropic virucidal light from a tissue-biased regulator of plant miRNA biogenesis to methylation and protection of supercoiled DNA via RNA interference.

At the time of this presentation during a virtual conference on Precision Medicine, there were only ~58,000 published works on microRNAs and the link from the creation of sunlight to biophysically constrained viral latency and healthy longevity across kingdoms could not be established in the context of the transgenerational epigenetic inheritance of all morphological and behavioral phenotypes.

Thankfully, all interested serious scientists can now follow-up on the claims via Sci-hub.
I do not advocate its use, nonetheless. They appear to be violating the copyright protection that allows publishers to profit from the works of scientists at the same time few people and fewer institutions can afford to subscribe. Please do not use the dois listed above to find articles that you can read for free. You might get in trouble for doing that. Alternatively, you could purchase the games for ages 10+ that link the creation of energy as information from subatomic particles to cytosis, which protects all organized genomes from the virus-driven degradation of messenger RNA that links mutations to all pathology.
Ecological variations and biophysically constrained natural selection for codon optimality links nutritional epigenetics to the behaviors that enable ecological adaptations.
Light, photoperiod, and the circadian clock modulate the expression levels of MIRNA genes.
This study also presents a first case where a few critical components in genome evolution are brought together: “base composition”, “mutation”, “UV radiation”, “DNA repair”, and “methylation”.
If genomes evolved, there would be no need to link the creation of sunlight from ecological variation to ecological adaptations via links from angstroms to ecosystems in all living genera.
