Bovine viral diarrhea virus (BVDV), a Pestivirus member of the Flaviviridae family, has a positive-stranded RNA genome which consists of a single open reading frame (ORF) and untranslated regions (UTRs) at the 5' and 3' ends. The 5' UTR harbors extensive RNA structure motifs; most of them were shown to contribute to an internal ribosomal entry site (IRES),(More)
The determination of all possible low-lying energy conformers of flexible molecules is of fundamental interest for various applications. It necessitates a reliable conformational search that is able to detect all important minimum structures and calculates the energies on an adequate level of theory. This work presents a strategy to identify low-energy(More)
