comment How to determine whether the energy of a stem-loop fold is significant or not?
@caseyr547: I am working on a substring of mRNA that is thought to fold independently of the other substring, because it is not complexed with other proteins.

Yes, it is an RNA. Allow me to update the original question. Many apologies for being unclear.

comment Clustal Omega - convert from distance into # of substitutions
Haha, it looks like I will have to do that in the end. I was trying to see if I could take the lazy route and not write a few lines of code. Thank you for all of your input nonetheless!

comment Are there tools for automatically parsing glycan names into tree structures?
No problem, I can brush up on my Java (it's been 6 years since I last used it). Thank you very much!

Ah! I misunderstood, my apologies. Would you be kind enough to share that code?

Update: I tried KEGG Draw, but it doesn't accept glycan IUPAC names.

I tried it, but unfortunately, the tools do not work with the glycan IUPAC names that we have on hand. :-(

@AtlLED, thank you for your effort in answering. Though your response didn't give me a direct solution to what I was looking for, it was helpful nonetheless, and I up voted it. Please see my clarification in the comment there. Thanks again!

Upvote because your answer was helpful, though I still couldn't figure out an answer to my problem. To clarify, I wanted to take a list of glycans, written in the IUPAC condensed nomenclature, and return an image for each glycan. Here, each image would be the "graph" representation (nodes + edges). I will update my original question to clarify that; in the meantime, do you know of any tool to do this? Thanks in advance!
