I want to see a free package available for researchers to do
exactly what you asked for. Basically the human genome project is supplying
a lot of sequence (along with other projects) and the information is not
really being looked at, even that which can be automated.
These are my thoughts:
This is the basic automated structure. It can be turned "on" or "off"
at any point. It would be ideal to have both a text interface and
GUI interface. I would like to see the Graphic displays in X or motif.
Also have output to postscript (black-white and color) printers or an
option as ascii.
/RNA structure / Including known motifs
