D. Structure-function relationships: 
Sequence patterns that predict function

*** One of the most challenging areas of computational molecular biology is the predicting functions of protein molecule from their sequences.

***Similarly, databases of important conserved elements within DNA sequences have been developed:

***Some 3D RNA structures can also be predicted based strictly on sequence
