  • Description

    a program for calculating the curvature of nucleic acids. From a given list of base pair step roll, tilt and twist values, and the specification of a reference plane, the program produces the global tilt, global roll and the bend magnitude. These quantities thus describe the direction and magnitude of a bend angle and can be used to analyze DNA and DNA/protein complex geometries.
