Abstract: For several decades, researchers have been working towards classification of RNA in the hopes of using this information to predict their secondary structures. Secondary structures refers to RNA after it has bonded with itself; a process known as folding. I will give a brief overview of some major achievements in this field of research as well as highlight some recent and exciting developments involving topological spaces called moduli spaces.
