        I want to see a free package available for researchers to do
exactly what you asked for.  Basically the human genome project is supplying
a lot of sequence (along with other projects) and the information is not
really being looked at, even that which can be automated.

These are my thoughts:

This is the basic automated structure. It can be turned "on" or "off"
at any point. It would be ideal to have both a text interface and
GUI interface.  I would like to see the Graphic displays in X or motif.
Also have output to postscript (black-white and color) printers or an
option as ascii.

      /RNA structure                    / Including known motifs
     / comparison                      /
    /                                 /structural
   /RNA structure    /Motif search   / prediction
  /                 /               /
