Subject

Description EteRNA is a browser based game, developed by scientists at Carnegie Mellon University and Stanford University, that engages users to solve puzzles related to the folding of RNA molecules.The project is funded by the National Science Foundation.

Similar to Foldit—created by some of the same researchers that developed EteRNA—the puzzles take advantage of human problem-solving capabilities to solve puzzles that are computationally laborious for current computer models. Purpose The fundamental purpose of Eterna is to provide a better understanding of RNA. EteRNA researchers hope to determine a "complete and repeatable set of rules to allow the synthesis of RNAs that consistently fold in expected shapes.[1] ? Research question EteRNA project leaders hope that determining these basic principles that may facilitate the design of RNA-based nanomachines and switches.
