An Investigation of RNA using the Discrete Frenet Frame
Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
A brief explanation of RNA and its general structure on dierent levels is
given. The standard continuous Frenet frame is explained. A discrete version of
the Frenet frame is explained in detail and constructed for a piecewise linear curve.
The results of the application of the discrete Frenet frame to RNA is shown in the
form of several distributions. An analysis of these distributions is conducted and
gives some results regarding tiny structures in RNA.
