Welcome to the PARTS Web Server

The PARTS server takes two RNA sequences, folds them into their lowest hybrid free energy conformation, and calculates base pair probabilities. Additionally, it creates an alignment file of the sequences. PARTS can be run in one of three modes: pairing probability (PP) mode, maximum a posteriori (MAP) mode, or stochastic sampling mode. Note that if an error is encountered in PARTS calculations, it may still be possible to do other calculations on one or both component sequences independently without errors.

Note: The maximum sequence length has been increased for several tools. Please see Sequence Limits for details.

Select Sequence 1 Input:

- OR -
Enter your sequence title and content below (replaces upload if present).
Please enter nucleotides only, no headers or comments in content.
Valid nucleotides are A, C, G, T, U, and X (unknown nucleotide). Lower case nucleotides are forced single stranded in calculation.




Select Sequence 2:

- OR -
Enter your sequence title and content below (replaces upload if present).
Please enter nucleotides only, no headers or comments in content.
Valid nucleotides are A, C, G, T, U, and X (unknown nucleotide). Lower case nucleotides are forced single stranded in calculation.

If a default value is left blank, the value is treated as if it was not changed at all.

Specify the minimum and maximum probabilities to show on the dot plot.
If a specified probability is out of range, it is ignored.
