Lecture 2: Results
1. lin-4 miRNA
- the lin-4 miRNA appears in many organisms
- the folding of the miRNA shows a stem loop
- the RNA Analyzer output: http://rnaanalyzer.bioapps.biozentrum.uni-wuerzburg.de/
2. Hammerhead_1
- http://rna.tbi.univie.ac.at/RNAWebSuite/help.html
- the dot plot represents a base pairing probability matrix and consists of an upper and lower triangle of a quadratic matrix. In the upper triangle, the size of the boxes is proportional to the base pairing probability.
- helpful explanations for general concepts and definitions (e.g. dot plot)
3. Riboswitch Finder
- riboswitches are metabolic binding domains within certain mRNAs to sense concentrations of their corresponding ligands (metabolites)
- the riboswitch starts at position 1288
