Research Projects

Research area
  • Molecular structures and macromolecule interactions, with particular reference to RNA and RNA-protein interactions.
  • Characterization of new bioinformatics issues related to study of biomolecule structures and their solution by means of new theoretical models definition and computational methods development.
  • Performing in silico experiments, optionally supported by biological and chemical experiments.
  • Development of the concept of virtual RNA bioinformatics laboratory and its implementation in RNApolis platform (
  • Development of computational systems addressing current problems of structural biology, i.a., RNA FRABASE, RNAComposer, RNApdbee, RNAvista, RNAtango.
  • Modeling of RNA secondary and tertiary structure
