Poliovirus 3' UTR RNA dynamics were calculated according to Hilbert's description in calculations.html.

The original data FLI movie files which were converted to standard QuickTime movies, as well as 30% and 50% reduction QuickTime and animated GIF movie files (by Jean-Yves Sgro).

The table below allows you to see the 30% animated GIF version.

QuickTime versions are available here.
