hi Anne!

why don't try JUMNA? ->

JUMNA (Junction Minimisation of Nucleic Acids). R. Lavery, K. Zakrzewska
and H. Sklenar Computer Physics Communications 91 (1995) 135-158.

there is no graphical interface but u can easily generate pdb files wich
can be visualized e.g. with rasmol, ...

best regards
