RNA 3D Structure Course Published Online

Prof. Zirbel taught a workshop course on RNA 3D structure while on sabbatical visiting Ivo Hofacker’s group at the University of Vienna.  The contents of the course are available online at this link.  It introduces the RNA nucleotides, RNA basepairs including non-Watson-Crick basepairs, RNA base stacking, base-phosphate interactions, anti and syn conformation of the backbone, RNA motifs, sequence variability in RNA motifs, and the rudiments of motif searching using FR3D.
