Assemble: an interactive graphical tool to analyze and build RNA architectures at the 2D and 3D levels

By Fabrice Jossinet, Thomas E. Ludwig and Eric Westhof


Summary: Assemble is an intuitive graphical interface to analyze, manipulate and build complex 3D RNA architectures. It provides several advanced and unique features within the framework of a semi-automated modeling process that can be performed by homology and ab initio with or without electron density maps. Those include the interactive editing of a secondary structure and a searchable, embedded library of annotated tertiary structures. Assemble helps users with performing recurrent and otherwise tedious tasks in structural RNA research
