NC-IUBMB nomenclature for the classification of nucleic acid junctions:

In order to make RNAJunction more useful and easier to use, we have applied a naming convention to each structure. This nomenclature is based on the 1994 Recommendations of the Nomenclature Committee of the International Union of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology (NC_IUBMB):
