Rtips RNA sTructure prediction using IP Scheme

Version 2.2.1
Last modified: 2023-03-01


The Rtips web server provides services for predicting RNA complicated secondary structures of given sequences, including intramolecular pseudoknots and joint structures formed from two RNAs. The programs in Rtips run fast and predict the maximum expected accuracy (MEA) structure using integer programming (IP). Let's get started by moving to respective services IPknot and RactIP.

Web Services


The C++ source codes are available for standalone use. In addition, the Perl template programs are provided to access several of the web services and parse the output.

Note: If you try to run the programs continuously on a large dataset, we strongly recommend that you use the C++ standalone programs instead of the Perl programs to reduce the load on the server.
