CMSR’14 is an official Workshop of ECCB 2014 .
Date. September 7th, 2014
Registration now closed
Scope. Ribonucleic acids (RNAs) play key roles in various aspects of the gene transcription and regulation processes, and are the focus of an ever-increasing interest in all areas of molecular biology. Deciphering the function of a non-protein coding RNA requires an intimate knowledge of its structure, motivating the development of structure-centric analyses.
This workshop aims to gather researchers and students, developing or using computational methods for predicting RNA structures or analyzing their contribution to biological processes. It will provide a forum for the dissemination of state-of-the-art methods and tools using discrete representations of folding landscapes in the context of big data. It will contribute to establish best-practices towards a better support for large-scale data within structure-centric algorithms.
