The classical 2D drawing of the secondary structure is the preferred visualization for publications.  Using RnaViz, Publication-quality secondary structure drawings of RNA secondary structures embedded in DCSE alignments can be produced easily. The program can also draw structures starting from ct files as produced by mfold or rnaml.

The program does not try to produce an initially non-overlapping drawing, but the layout of a structure drawing can be changed interactively. Using skeleton files the layout of a previously well arranged structure drawing can be applied to a newly created drawing. In this way a range of similar structures can be drawn with a minimum of effort. Skeletons for several types of RNA molecules are included with the program.
