Abstract: 

RNA is a two-level language. The first level is the language of RNA sequence. The second level is the RNA structures and their biological roles. The seminar will discuss new computational approaches to study the roles RNA structures may play controlling gene expression level, temperature adaptation, bacterial and viral evolution.
