News release at http://bit.ly/18pVjjA A computational model developed by researchers at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute is the first to accurately simulate the complex twists of a short sequence of RNA as it folds into a critical hairpin structure known as a "tetraloop." The color code is red=guanine, green=cytosine, and yellow=adenine, and dotted white lines are hydrogen bonds. There is a cyan overlay in the last 5 seconds indicating the experimentally determined structure.
