Within this paper we investigate the Bernoulli model for random secondary structures of ribonucleic acid (RNA) molecules. Assuming that two random bases can form a hydrogen bond with probability p we prove asymptotic equivalents for the averaged number of hairpins and bulges, the averaged loop length, the expected order, the expected number of secondary… CONTINUE READING
