modified RNA
« on: June 10, 2015, 12:00:53 pm »
Hi. I want to generate the modified RNA that bases are A/U/C/G; but suger is changed. I just access to "gromacs" as a MD package at now; gromacs couldn't recognize this modified RNA. At first i simulate standard RNA with AMBER force field of GROMACS package but I don't know what I should to do later....Can DSSR software accept this job about simulate this modified RNA? please help me.
Best Regards.

Thanks your interest in using DSSR, and posting on the 3DNA Forum.

I do not think I quite get your point. As far as DSSR is concerned, it is an analysis and annotation tool -- no simulation, no prediction, no energetics. Reading through the DSSR User Manual should give you a better idea of what DSSR is about.

Please be *specific* by providing a *concrete* example to illustrate unambiguously what you want to achieve.

Best regards,
