Noncoding RNAs

  • We designed a new algorithm to produce all locally optimal secondary structures of an RNA sequence. Locally optimal secondary structures are thermodynamically stable RNA structures that are maximal for inclusion: they cannot be extended without producing a conflict between base pairs in the secondary structure, or increasing the free energy. This was published in Journal for Computational Biology [7] .

  • We took part to a collaborative work on benchmarking for RNA structure comparison. This work has been published in Advances in bioinformatics [2] .
