About EternaBot


EternaBot is a secondary structure algorithm created by players of Eterna project.

Eterna players have designed and experimentally tested over 700 sequences. Based the experimental results, they have proposed a set of rules for robust RNA design.

EternaBot is built to design a sequence based on those rules. It compiles each design rule as a scoring function. The bot then tries to create a sequence that maximizes the combination of the scoring functions.
