[…] the topology of three-way junction (family a, b or c) occurring in the determined its1 model and also predicted coaxial helical stacking arrangement in the junction. the freely available programs junction explorer [] and cartaj [] were used for that purpose. these programs consider mainly length of the loop between helices, sequence content and either free-energy associated to base stacking […]

[…] our new module denoted rnajag (rna-junction-as-graph) predicts tree graphs of rna junctions for a given secondary structure (see for the computational procedure). it expands upon our program junction-explorer in several important ways; first, rnajag generates a candidate junction graph model with specific helical arrangements (on top of family type/stacking orientation); second, […]

[…] cannot predict multiple rna junction structures well, though there are many useful 3d prediction programs as recently surveyed (,). very recently, our rna junction structure prediction program junction-explorer, based on data mining and bioinformatics, was shown to predict the topology of individual rna junction domains with ∼70% or more prediction accuracy (). here, to construct plausible […]
