Python Package for RNA structure prediction analysis.
CONTENTS AND COPYRIGHT
This package is used for maniputating genome annotation and seqeunce files, such as Bed, GenePred, BAM, Wiggle and BigWig formats. Users interested in this package should contact firstname.lastname@example.org for details. This package uses the Vienna RNA Package lib and H directories (external/RNAlib/fold) and RNAStructure libs (external/RNAlib/plot), and users should read the COPYING or ReadMe.txt files inside and behave accordingly.
