Load Data Set:

RiboVision can be used to view/analyze secondary structures alone or secondary structures in combination with 3D structures.



RiboVision saves images from each panel separately.

2D Panel

Would you like to export just the visible layers, or all layers?

SVG files are best for further editing.


PDF files are best for printing and sharing.


PNG and JPG files are good for presentations. PNG has the advantage of a transparent background.

3D Panel

Jmol has built-in image saving capabilities.

Alternatively, quick save the 3D Panel as a JPG.


Additionally, you may export a PyMOL Script for further processing in PyMOL.

Plain Sequences

Sequences (including partial sequences from selections) can be exported in a standard fasta format.

Sequences (including partial sequences from selections) can be exported to native RiboVision format. These files contain nucleotide numbers and optionally can be imported into RiboVison using the Import function.

Data & Sequences

Sequences can be saved along with data from all layers in native RiboVision format.

Nucleotide-Nucleotide Interactions can also be exported to native RiboVision format. These files can further be imported into RiboVision using the Import function.
