Starting with the discovery of microRNAs and the advent of genome-wide transcriptomics, non-protein-coding transcripts have moved from a fringe topic to a central field research in molecular biology. In this contribution we review the state of the art of ``computational RNomics'', i.e., the bioinformatics approaches to genome-wide RNA annotation. Instead of rehashing results from recently published surveys in detail, we focus here on \emph{the} open problem in the field, namely (functional) annotation of the plethora of putative RNAs. A series of exploratory studies are used to provide non-trivial examples for the discussion of some of the difficulties.
