The Vienna RNA Package consists of a C code library and several stand-alone programs for the prediction and comparison of RNA secondary structures. With the new release of version 2.0, we introduce the most recent nearest neighbor energy model for all free energy calculations. Additionally, most of the stand-alone programs included are now able to read FASTA formatted input data. This makes conversion of you data files, as necessary in previous releases, obsolete!


Upcoming modulesystem change alert!

Due to large number of applications and their versions it is not practical to keep them explicitly listed at our wiki pages. Therefore an upgrade of modulefiles is underway. A feature of this upgrade will be the existence of default module for every application. This default choice does not need version number and it will load some (usually latest) version.

You can test the new version now by adding a line

source /cvmfs/

to your script before loading a module. Then, you can list all versions of viennaRNA and load default version of viennaRNA as

module avail viennaRNA/ # list available modules
module load viennaRNA   # load (default) module

If you wish to keep up to the current system, it is still possible. Simply list all modules by

module avail viennaRNA

and choose explicit version you want to use.
