In order to prepare the user to create more stable RNA, the tutorial should prepare them to pay attention to the energy. A puzzle or two to get the user above or below a certain range would be sufficient.
Seth: but one important thing to note is that lower energies are not necessarily better. In fact, one of the thing which we're trying to figure out in the lab is what are the right criteria to predict if an RNA will synthesize properly.
I agree with the points above, however, when the upcoming improvements regarding ensemble readouts are implemented (such as dot-plots, MFE frequency, and ensemble diversity), a tutorial contrasting these measures with MFE would be awesome.
