Nucleic Acid Database

The Nucleic Acid Database provides structural information about nucleic acids. It allows you to quickly search for particular structures by entering constraints into their search engine.


This website gives access to a program called mFold, created by Professor Michael Zuker at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute's School of Science. The program allows the user to enter a RNA sequence with certain constraints. The sequence will be folded by the program to create the optimal minimum free energy secondary RNA structure. The output files of the program include a pictoral view of the structure and a ct file, which can be utilized in our RNA Matrix program.


The Pseudobase is a database that provides access to a general collection of RNA Pseudoknots.

The RNA World Website at IMB-Jena

The RNA World Website provides access to several internet links on RNA related topics.

The 5S Ribosomal RNA Database

The 5S Ribosomal RNA Database provides access to general information about 5S ribosomal ribonucleic acids (rRNA).
