RNA is an essential element in every living organism where it plays crucial roles. Since RNA structure is strictly related to its function, it is important to find common RNA motifs in order to find functional similarities. We will present the method proposed by Backofen and Siebert to solve the exact common sequence/pattern problem, which was unsolved until 2004.
