Current Research and Projects

The RNA Informatics Lab conducts research in RNA informatics and fundamental algorithm development that facilitates effective investigations of bimolecular sequences and structures. The research is currently involving the following topics:


  • Applications: Development of scalable and accurate algorithms for prediction of RNA 3D structures from sequences, prediction of RNA-protein complexes, and RNA design.
  • Methodologies: Design of effective methods for statistical learning of Markov networks and casual networks with applications in bioinformatics and beyond.

  • Theories: Research in algorithmic fundations, in particular in structural graph theory, complexity theory, and computational linguistics to support methodology and applied algorithm development.
