This is the development version of ncRNAtools; for the stable release version, see ncRNAtools.

An R toolkit for non-coding RNA

Bioconductor version: Development (3.20)

ncRNAtools provides a set of basic tools for handling and analyzing non-coding RNAs. These include tools to access the RNAcentral database and to predict and visualize the secondary structure of non-coding RNAs. The package also provides tools to read, write and interconvert the file formats most commonly used for representing such secondary structures.
