Random versus Deterministic Descent in RNA Energy Landscape Analysis

Adv Bioinformatics
PMCID: 4808746
PMID: 27110241
DOI: 10.1155/2016/9654921

[…] bopt for such a task, where indeed the sets of local minima are identical to the current RNAsubopt plus Barriers results, is beyond the scope of the present paper.Lorenz and Clote introduce in [] the RNAlocopt tool for sampling and approximating the total number of metastable conformations using the partition function. However, currently the RNAlocopt tool has only been implemented by using the Tu […]


Asymptotic structural properties of quasi random saturated structures of RNA

PMCID: 3818986
PMID: 24156624
DOI: 10.1186/1748-7188-8-24

[…] [,] could be extended to do so for both homopolymers and RNA sequences. (Note that the program RNAsat, described in [], can sample saturated structures in the Turner energy landscape, and the program RNAlocopt, described in [], can sample locally optimal structures in the Turner energy landscape). In contrast, it is extremely simple to implement a program to sample quasi-random saturated structure […]
