Visualizing RNA Secondary Structure Base Pair Binding Probabilities using Nested Concave Hulls

Joris Sansen, Romain Bourqui, Patricia Thebault, Julien Allali, David Auber

[Design Contest Entry] The challenge 1 of the BIOVIS 2015 design contest consists in designing an intuitive visual depiction of base pairs binding probabilities for secondary structure of ncRNA. Our representation depicts the potential nucleotide pairs binding using

nested concave hulls over the computed MFE ncRNA secondary structure. Thus, it allows to identify regions with a high level of uncertainty in the MFE computation and the structures which seem to match to reality.
