A. Recently research suggest that much of the junk serves to regulate when genes are translated into proteins, and how much protein is thus produced.

Subject-Verb doesn't agree in number. SIngular verb "research" requires plural verb "sugests" INCORRECT

B. Much of the junk serves to regulate when genes are translated into proteins, and how much protein is thus produced, and is suggested by recent research.

"Much of the junk" is plural and requires plural verb "suggest" INCORRECT

C. Recently research suggests much of the junk serves to regulate when genes are translated into proteins, and how much protein is thus produced.

Adjective "recent" is correct usage instead of adverb "recently" This also missed "that" after "suggests" INCORRECT

D. Recent research suggests that much of the junk serves to regulate when genes are translated into proteins, and how much protein is thus produced.

E. Recent research suggests much of the junk serves to regulate when genes are translated into proteins, and how much protein is thus produced.

After "suggests", "that" should be present followed by a clause. INCORRECT

Hence option D

+1 for D.

A. Recently research suggest that much of the junk serves to regulate when genes are translated into proteins, and how much protein is thus produced.

B. Much of the junk serves to regulate when genes are translated into proteins, and how much protein is thus produced, and is suggested by recent research.

C. Recently research suggests much of the junk serves to regulate when genes are translated into proteins, and how much protein is thus produced.

D. Recent research suggests that much of the junk serves to regulate when genes are translated into proteins, and how much protein is thus produced. --> Correct construct, rectifies S-V error, and is less wordy

E. Recent research suggests much of the junk serves to regulate when genes are translated into proteins, and how much protein is thus produced.

Hence, D.

What are the errors we are looking at..
1) Recently Vs recent
Research is a noun and it requires a adjective RECENT as a MODIFIER. Recently is an adverb that will modify verb or adjective or adverb.
2) Verb error
Research is singular, so requires suggests
3) THAT
THAT is required to start a clause after 'suggest'
4) Parallelism
Recent research suggests that much of the junk serves to regulate when genes are translated into proteins, and how much protein is thus produced.

Only D corrects all the above mentioned errors.

D

D is my answer.
It rectifies the S-V error using suggests instead of suggest and it uses proper adjective "Recent" for clear meaning.
