    Despite great interest in solving RNA secondary structures due to their impact on function, it remains an open problem to determine structure from sequence alone. Several high-throughput approaches to RNA structure determination have recently emerged, which facilitate parallel and high-resolution measurements of structural information for a multitude of distinct RNAs in a single experiment. One of these techniques, SHAPE-Seq, was the first to couple a chemistry-based approach to structure determination, called SHAPE, with next-generation sequencing of its DNA products. Following sequencing, an algorithmic pipeline recovers the desired information from the noisy measurements, representing a novel approach to rapid, consistent, and fully automated analysis of this new wealth of information. I will describe SHAPE-Seq and its model-based approach to analysis. I will then discuss several very recent and exiting breakthroughs in experimental structure determination along with the informatics challenges that they present. I will conclude by highlighting the role that model-based computer simulations can play in facilitating rational experiment design of these advanced and complex sequencing-based methods.
