Eric Westhof: Visualizing RNA

Eric Westhof ( presents an overview of the use of visualization in studying the 3D structure of RNA molecules. He highlights the compact and elegant visual representation of base-pairing he and others have developed that enable many of the essential features of RNA 3D structures to be represented in 2D. This talk was presented at VIZBI 2011, an international conference series on visualizing biological data ( funded by NIH & EMBO.
