RNA Algorithm Wars (RNA-AW) allows EteRNA players to compete with each other, pitting puzzle designing ability against puzzle solving algorithm scripting ability.
RNA-AW focuses on designing the algorithms that govern RNA folding, it encourages participants to work out algorithmic techniques to solve RNA folding puzzles and discourages result oriented techniques tailored to specific puzzles, like brute forcing and hit-and-trial. in late 2013 EteRNA added the RNA-AW functionality to encourage more RNA solving scripts.
EteRNA RNA-AW is powered by EteRNA's homebrew language EteRNA Script.
EteRNA RNA-AW rankings are based on player ratings. The higher a player's rating, the higher the player's rank.
Development of the project is currently on hiatus forever.
