RNA: The cousin left behind becomes a star

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

A brief introduction to RNA structure and function is offered, including recent exciting discoveries concerning RNA's starring roles in gene regulation. Challenges in RNA research are outlined, and the role of modeling and bioinformatics approaches to these problems is suggested. Applications of a graph-theory representation of RNA secondary structures to RNA analysis and design are illustrated.
