Nucleic Acid MOdeling Tool(NAMOT) is a graphic tool to build and
manipulate nucleic acid structures. It is built upon the reduced
set of coordinates developed here at Los Alamos National Laboratory in
collaboration with scientists at the Max-Planck-Institute for
Biophysical Chemistry in Goettingen,Germany.
Use of these reduced coordinates provide a powerful and
intuitive interface to nucleic acid structure. NAMOT2 features a
set of user modifiable libraries that provide flexibility for users to expand
NAMOT2 to fit their research needs. The graphic user interface
attempts to make the program as efficient as possible while
still retaining the power of the parameter set. Both Motif and XView
interfaces exist, allowing NAMOT to run on most UNIX workstations.
NAMOT produces graphic output in PS and PPM formats.
PDB,AMBER, and parameter formats can be used as both input and output.
