A statistical reference for RNA secondary structures with minimum free energies is computed by folding large ensembles of random RNA sequences. Four nucleotide alphabets are used: two binary alphabets, AU and GC, the biophysical AUGC and the synthetic GCXK alphabet. RNA secondary structures are made of structural elements, such as stacks, loops, joints, and(More)
Synthesis and testing of mixtures of compounds in a combinatorial library allow much greater throughput than synthesis and testing of individual compounds. When mixtures of compounds are screened, however, the possibility exists that the most active compound will not be identified. The specific strategies employed for pooling and deconvolution will affect(More)
Iterative synthesis and screening strategies have recently been used to identify unique active molecules from complex synthetic combinatorial libraries. These techniques have many advantages over traditional screening methods, including the potential to screen large numbers of compounds to identify an active molecule while avoiding analytical separations(More)
Synthesis and testing of complex mixtures maximize the number of compounds that can be prepared and tested in a combinatorial library. When mixtures of compounds are screened, however, the identity of the compound(s) selected may depend on the deconvolution procedure employed. Previously, we developed a model system for evaluation of deconvolution(More)

Synthesis and testing of mixtures of compounds in a combinatorial library offers the potential of much greater throughput than the 'one compound, one well' approach. When mixtures of compounds are screened, however, pooling and deconvolution strategies must be employed to identify the most active compound in the library. The possibility exists that the most(More)
