The Ding laboratory has been engaged in algorithms and software tool development for prediction of RNA secondary structure and their applications, with a focus on computational prediction and validation for functional elucidation of regulatory non-coding RNAs, in particular, animal microRNAs (miRNAs) and small bacterial RNAs (sRNAs). A long-term service obligation to the scientific community is the continuing development and maintenance of the Sfold web server for making our tools freely available to scientists around the world. Sfold web server is located at http://sfold.wadsworth.org.
