Versatile and rapid web-servers are timely for applied tasks requiring calculations of RNA secondary structure. We describe a web-server that integrates programs for analysis of RNA secondary structure. The server currently offers: solution of tasks of RNA folding and inverse folding based on the genetic algorithm; estimation of a sequence capability to form secondary structure; and an editor for interactive RNA folding with imposed constraints. Our server is publicly available at
