Noncoding RNAs play pivotal roles in the regulation of gene expression. They exhibit a diversity of functions whether encoded by cellular or viral genomes. I shall present several recent stories related to non-coding RNAs produced by the oncogenic gamma herpesviruses. These will illustrate the habit of viruses to acquire components from their host cells but then utilize them in unanticipated ways to enhance the viral life cycle. Furthermore, these studies provide insights into the evolution of both viruses and their host organisms
