Thought I'd start sharing some of the websites I come across. Some of you might find them very useful. I'll continue adding them as I go along.

I'll add a few:
A great video lecture that introduced RNA folding algorithms (meant for CS majors so it's light on the biochemistry)
http://echoserver.sinc.stonybrook.edu...

A collection of powerpoints by some of the guys who came up with the energy function to begin with (esp. the 4/7/09 lecture, the "secondary structure" lecture from 4/4/07, and Prof. Turner's Lecture)

The RNA Integrity Database (RINdb)
I can't seem to find this, but it is quite highly referenced.

RNA Quality Control
http://www.biomedicalgenomics.org/RNA...

Nucleic Acid Database
http://ndbserver.rutgers.edu/

RNA Strand (The RNA secondary STRucture and statistical ANalysis Database )
http://www.rnasoft.ca/strand/

DNA BAser
http://www.dnabaser.com/download/DNA-...

GoCore
http://www.helsinki.fi/project/ritvos...
This one seems quite promising, in that it can automate a lot of what we do in Excel. I havent been able to get this working though. Hopefully someone else can figure it out.
