<p>MC-Sym is an intelligent computer system that builds 3D ribonucleic acid structures from low-resolution data by combining symbolic and numerical computations. Specifically, the symbolic step generates all-atom sketches of 3D structures that nonlinear optimization methods can refine in a second step.</p>
