Congratulations to Chanin Tolson and Meredith Corley (Laederach Lab) who’s posters titled “Autonomous Classification of RNA Structure Change” and “Detecting riboSNitches with RNA folding algorithms: a genome-wide benchmar” both won awards for computational innovation in RNA at the Annual meeting of the RNA society in Madison, Wisconsin last week. Chanin and Meredith developed novel approaches to predict the deleterious effects of Single Nucleotide Polymorphisms (SNPs) on RNA structure and identify structure changes in the human genome. They were each awarded a cash prize and recognized at the awards ceremony of the meeting on May 30th.
