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.

Getting there. The workshop will be hosted at the Palais de la Musique et des Congrès [Ext] (Strasbourg, France), in the Salon Bartholdi [Ext]. More info on the ECCB’14 website [Ext].
