This is the main resources page for the RNAML syntax for exchanging RNA information. This syntax was designed to easily express data on RNA sequence and structure, and to allow the transmission of information among the RNA community

The syntax is the result of a collaborative effort between researchers active in the field of RNA structure and computer science. Among them, we find:

  • Allison Waugh, Stanford University
  • Patrick Gendron, Université de Montréal
  • Russ Altman, Stanford University
  • James W. Brown, North Carolina State University
  • David Case, Scripps Research Institute
  • Daniel Gautheret, CNRS, Marseille, France
  • Stephen C. Harvey, University of Alabama at Birmingham
  • Neocles Leontis, Bowling Green State University
  • John Westbrook, Rutgers University
  • Eric Westhof, IBMC-CNRS, Strasbourg, France
  • Michael Zuker, Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute
  • François Major, Université de Montréal

A manuscript describing in details the new syntax has been submitted to RNA:

A. Waugh et al. A standard syntax for exchanging RNA information.

The DTD and XML Schema for the RNAML syntax is available as well as some preliminary examples showing the use of the syntax.
