Abstract RNA Structural Analyser

Ribonucleic acids (RNA's) are one of the most important biological polymers active in living organisms. The functions of many classes of RNA's are determined primarily by their structures. The design of RNA molecules of known structures hence has applications in biological and biochemical research, as well as in industrial applications of this research. There are also applications in DNA computing and molecular nanotechnology. In this project, I will outline the parameters and functionality for an RNA Structural Analyser which will be used to generate statistical information on known RNA's. This information can then be used to generate RNA's with biological features, using contemporary RNA design algorithms.
