During the past few years, NMR methodology for the study of nucleic acids has benefited from new developments that greatly improved state-of-the-art technology for the precise determination of three-dimensional structures. Substantial progress has been made in designing experimental protocols for...
Large RNAs often have rugged folding energy landscapes that result in severe misfolding and slow folding kinetics. Several interdependent parameters that contribute to misfolding are now well understood and examples of large RNAs and ribonucleoproteins that avoid kinetic traps have been reported....
During the past year, major improvements have been made in methods used to solve RNA structures from crystals, find RNA patterns in sequence data and determine RNA secondary structure. Computational methods for assisting an interactive computer graphics human modeler, searching the conformational...
