As far as I know the best RNA folding program was written by Michael
Zuker.  Don Gilbert ported this program to the Macintosh. Its
available via the IUBIO gopher and anonymous ftp. For anonymous ftp
look in the /molbio/mac directory and retrieve the mulfold.hqx file.
This is a BinHex'd copy of the MulFold Macintosh version of Zuker's
folding program that uses Turner et al's dangle energies and will
report multiple structures. A program by Don called LoopViewer is
available in the same directory and graphically displays the MulFold
results.

If you work on RNA you might also be interested in Don's Loop-D-Loop
application that is a tool for drawing RNA secondary structures.
