  A new version of RNAdraw is now available (V0.99-06). 
It features the following:

1) Possibility to import .ct files generated with 
M. Zukers mfold program.

2) Possibility to pair/unpair bases in the matrix view by
just clicking at the basepair desired. Changes will be 
immediately applied to the (eventually open) structure view, 
allowing you to monitor conformation/energy changes 

3) A crude algorithm for extracing structures from the 
probability matrix.

4) Minor changes in structure viewing (applied probabilities
are now linewith coded, not linestyle coded) and corresponding
print routines. 

5) Matrix Histogram : 1) possibility to extract the least/mean/highest
                         probabilities from the current structure

                      2) instant application of cutoff to matrix view

6) 'Safer' heat calculations
7) Some minor bug fixes

(hopefully not: 8) Some new minor bugs? )

Retrieve and enjoy!

For those of you not familiar with RNAdraw:

Rnadraw is a (free) RNA secondary structure/probability matrix calculation
and analysis program for Win32 (Windows NT/95/ 3.1 with Win32s)
featuring M. Zuker's and J. McCaskill's algorithms and 
an easy-to-use and completely integrated user interface (no more 
command line agony) with lots of viewing/editing/printing (and more)

For a complete introduction, screen shots, system requirements 
and performance issues see the Rnadraw homepage:


Rnadraw is also available via anonymous ftp at


in the pub/rnadraw directory.
