RNAView generates 2-dimensional displays of RNA/DNA secondary structures with tertiary interactions. RNAView automatically identifies and classifies the types of base pairs that are formed in nucleic acid structures, fully implementing Leontis and Westhof's ( RNA (2001) 7, 499-512), convention for edge-to-edge hydrogen bonding interactions.

This program's output can be used by nuccyl to generate PyMOL figures.

To use RNAView for Linux, SGI, or Mac OS X:

The above documentation is also available by typing:

rnaview -h
after setting up RNAView. The RNAView homepage does not currently contain any more information, but you can check it anyway.

Example PDB files may be found in $RNAVIEW/test. Copy these to another directory if you wish to experiment.

If you use this program in a published report please cite the following:
