Using the dot2ct Server

It is possible to download an example dot bracket file, to demonstrate the interface, by clicking on the link above the "Select Dot Bracket Input" form section.

  1. Select a dot bracket structure for analysis.

    A dot bracket file can be uploaded using the "Select Dot Bracket File" control. This dot bracket file can only have 1 structure in it.
  2. Enter an email address where results can be sent, if desired.

    If an email address is specified in the appropriate box, an email will be sent to inform you when calculations are done. Note that failing to enter an email address may cause results to be inaccessible, if you navigate away from the server while calculations are running.
  3. Begin the calculation.

    Press the "Submit Query" button to begin the calculation. If you remain on the server page, the results will appear when they are finished.
