RNABuilder just released

By Joy Ku

RNABuilder is a tool for building 3D RNA models using a variety of knowledge the user has about the structure, including base pairing interactions. Key to the algorithm's effectiveness is its ability to enforce a folding pathway that is automatically computed or provided by the user. It uses multi-resolution techniques, such as coarse-grained force fields and selective rigidification of groups of atoms, to decrease computational time. It has just been released (for Windows and MacOS) and can be freely downloaded from http://simtk.org/home/rnatoolbox.
