Probabilistic models of RNA secondary structure

Abstract:

This thesis develops probabilistic models of RNA secondary structure. The first chapter introduces RNA secondary structure prediction, in particular stochastic context-free grammars (SCFGs), and considers a novel method for automated design of SCFGs. Many SCFGs are found with a similar predictive quality as those commonly used for RNA secondary structure prediction. The second chapter discusses the effect alignment quality, evolutionary distance between sequences, and number of sequences i...
