MMB (a contraction of MacroMolecule Builder) was previously known as RNABuilder. The latter is available up to revision 2.2. We renamed the software since even some longtime users were unaware that the package now handles protein and DNA as well as RNA. You can use MMB for threading, morphing, folding (e.g. using base pairing contacts), redesigning complexes, fitting to low-resolution density maps, predicting local rearrangements upon mutation, and many other applications limited mostly by your imagination.

MMB was written by Samuel Flores at the Stanford Simbios Center. It is currently maintained by the same person, now an assistant professor at Uppsala University, Sweden.


RNABuilder just released

Jun 9, 2009

RNABuilder is a tool for building 3D RNA models using a variety of knowledge the user has about the structure, including base pairing interactions.
