RLooM – RNA Loop Modeling

RLooM

:: DESCRIPTION

RLooM is a web application for homology-based modeling of RNA loops utilizing template structures extracted from the PDB. RLooM allows the insertion and replacement of loop structures of a desired sequence into an existing RNA structure. Furthermore, a comprehensive database of loops in RNA structures can be accessed through the web interface.

LoopTK 2.0.1 – Protein Loop Kinematic Toolkit

LoopTK 2.0.1

:: DESCRIPTION

LoopTK (Protein Loop Kinematic Toolkit)is a C++ based object-oriented toolkit which models the kinematics of a protein chain and provides methods to explore its motion space. In LoopTK, a protein chain is modeled as a robot manipulator with bonds acting as arms and the dihedral degree of freedoms acting as joints. LoopTK is designed specifically to model the kinematics of protein loops, but it can be used to analyze the motion of any part of the protein chain. LoopTK provides methods for sampling the conformation space of protein loops as well as the self motion space of a loop. Example applications for LoopTK include x-ray crystallography, homology modeling, and drug design.
