  5. University Of Electro-Communications Research: Mathematical Model...Read the original story

    Tuesday Jul 5 | BioSpace

    Researchers propose "Oritatami" as a mathematical model of the cotranscriptional folding of RNA in order to widen applications of RNA origami-one of the most significant experimental breakthroughs in molecular self-assembly. RNA origami by Geary, Rothemund, and Andersen is an experimental architecture of nanoscale rectangular tiles that self-assemble from an RNA sequence being folded cotranscriptionally, as shown in Figure 1. Theoretical models for programming this kind of molecular self-assembly are needed, as Winfree's abstract tile assembly model has yielded tremendous successes in experimental DNA tile self-assembly, which self-assemble a structure by letting unit DNA tiles attach to each other in some pre-programmed manner.
