About RNApdbee

In the RNA structural biology and bioinformatics an access to correct RNA secondary structure representation is of crucial importance. This is true for both, secondary and three-dimensional RNA structure prediction studies.

Here, we present RNApdbee which greatly facilitates an access to RNA secondary structure topology extracted from pdb/mmCIF files of both, knotted and unknotted RNA structures. The tool also allows to convert between BPSEQ, CT and dot-bracket notations, and provides graphical images of RNA secondary structures.
