Ensemble Calc – Script to Compute Equilibrium Concentrations & Free Energy Change

Ensemble Calc

:: DESCRIPTION

Ensemble Calc compute the final concentrations of miRNA and mRNA, and the net free energy change () of interaction. Ensemble Calc script computes equilibrium concentrations and free energy change when an oligo(ribo)nucleotide binds to a target nucleic acid. Although written for a specific application, the binding of a miRNA to a mRNA, it can be used for the binding of a short DNA oligo to a long(er) DNA target.
