[Internship/PhD] Algorithmic aspects of RNA locally optimal structures

Scientific context. RiboNucleic Acids (RNAs) are single-stranded macromolecules which can be crudely described as sequences of length ranging from 20 to 3 000 letters, over the four-letters alphabet {A,C,G,U}. Due to its single-stranded nature, any synthesized RNA molecule undergoes a folding process, in which connections, also known as base-pairs mediated by hydrogen bonds, are established …
