The RNAdesign package

[Tags: gpl, library, program]

The RNA sequence design problem asks for a single sequence that readily folds into the (one or more) structural targets that are given as input.

This program expects on standard input a file with one or more structures and, possibly, additional sequence constraints in the form of an IUPAC string. It will then run a Markov chain to find a sequence that is optimal with regard to the structural targets and the user-defineable optimization function.

The user can give different optimization criteria on the command line, akin to a simple calculator.

You can also run RNAdesign --showmanual which will display the same
