As described in (3.11.6), both lrna and crna can be used to create plot files that contain the information encoded in an energy dot plot. The ``dot2ps'' program reads such files to create an energy dot plot. One option of the program is to create a second plot that is rotated through 180° and placed in the lower left portion of the plot. An example is given in Figure 4. The ``dot2ps'' program is run interactively, and produces a PostScript file in color or black and white.
Figure 4: A color energy dot plot for the Alu sequence. The optimal folding energy is -114.5 kcal/mol. The upper right dot plot has an 11.4 kcal/mol energy increment (10%), while the lower left plot contains only the optimal base pairs.
