The RNAView program generates 2-dimensional displays of RNA/DNA secondary structures
with tertiary interactions. RNAView automatically identifies
and classifies the types of base pairs that are formed in nucleic
acid structures, fully implementing Leontis and Westhof's
( RNA (2001) 7, 499-512), convention for edge-to-edge hydrogen bonding
[Yang, H., Jossinet, F., Leontis, N., Chen, L., Westbrook, J., Berman, H.M.,
Westhof, E. (2003). Tools for the automatic identification and classification
of RNA base pairs. Nucleic Acids Research 31.13: 3450-3460.]
RnamlView is a visualization tool that displays/edits 2-dimensional
diagrams of RNA/DNA secondary structures with tertiary interactions created by RNAView (above). The application
generates standard molecular representations (e.g. tRNA cloverleaf structures) or any structural representation
desired by the user by rearranging various parts (e.g helices and single strands) of the RNAView 2D diagrams.
RNA motifs are rapidly identified and classified with the base pair annotation and the 2D graphic display.
