RNA molecules usually form intricate secondary and tertiary structures during genetic information transfer to achieve their regulatory and catalytic functions. The dynamic change of RNA structures is an ingenious means for living organisms to adjust gene expression in response to environmental cues quickly. RNA structural
dynamics have been demonstrated to be playing crucial roles in normal physiological processes and pathogenesis. Analyzing the higher-order structure of RNA is the only way to understand the functional mechanism of noncoding RNA in cells. It has received widespread attention and interest and has gradually become a research frontier in the RNA field. This article mainly introduces the progress of diverse RNA structure probing methods, including bioinformatics prediction, low-throughput physical approaches, and emerging high-throughput sequencing
technologies. We also summarize the application and limitations of these research methods.
