We will be seeking NIH funding for continued research, development and maintenance of the Structural Classification of RNA (SCOR) database. We are surveying current and potential users to learn who uses SCOR, and how it is used. This survey is important to our future development of SCOR. We ask that you please take our survey.
  SCOR 2.0.3, 24 Oct. 2004: 579 PDB entries (15 May 2004).

  The Structural Classification of RNA (SCOR) is a database designed to provide a comprehensive perspective and understanding of RNA motif structure, function, tertiary interactions and their relationships. SCOR 2.0.3 provides a survey of the three-dimensional motifs contained in 579 NMR and X-ray RNA structures available as of May 15, 2004. This includes 8,270 secondary structural elements, of which 2,920 are hairpin loops and 5,350 are internal loops. The structural elements are organized in a directed acyclic graph (DAG) architecture, allowing multiple parent classes for a motif. Users can browse the database or search by PDB or NDB identifier, keyword or sequence. Descriptions and cartoon representations of each of the classes are available. RNA motifs reported in the literature (e.g. Kink turns, S-turns, GNRA loops) are incorporated into the classification.
