About the application
RNAStructViz is a graphical cross platform visualization, comparison, and analysis tool for RNA secondary structures. The GUI for the application is based on FLTK 1.4.x enabled with-cairo for improved graphics. The application is able to load structure data in many standard text-based file formats including CT, DotBracket, SEQ, and other custom formats that support multiple structures sampled per file (see complete list of examples). The diagrams generated by RNAStructViz can be exported to portable external images including to the PNG and SVG formats. The comparative statistics window can export custom generated comparison data to the plaintext-based CSV format for later processing. A FAQ page, and a set of informational first-run instructions for what users should expect to see when running RNAStructViz for the first time are available on the detailed GitHub wiki page.
