The CLC RNA Workbench gives the user easy access to a range of complex algorithms and options. RNA secondary structures can be predicted using state-of-the-art free energy minimization algorithms and parameters, thermodynamic and statistical details are easily extracted and experimental information can be easily incorporated into the analysis.
With the Workbench, RNA secondary structure information can be viewed and manipulated through a
graphically and functionally advanced user interface. Through this, the user can simultaneously view linear, tabular, and 2D representations of RNA sequences and structures of choice. Thermodynamic and statistical properties of secondary structure elements can be easily accessed. And secondary structures can be edited to facilitate interpretation and publication.
Advanced computer skills are not required. Due to a unique graphical user interface the CLC RNA Workbench is easy and intuitive to use, and the comprehensive user manual explains all the details. The full compatibility between all types of CLC workbenches provides strong support for efficient collaboration within research groups; allowing all researchers to easily share sequence data and research results.
