Embryonic stem (ES) cells undergo rapid cell division without compromising their ability to differentiate into virtually all cell types. Using ES cells deficient for a microRNA biogenesis factor, Dgcr8, a new report uncovers the importance of specific microRNAs in the ES cell cycle transition from G1 to S phase.
