The compressed and detailed graph representations for a sample RNA molecule.
(a) A sample RNA structure molecule. (b) The RNA molecule underlying representation used in RiboSketch  and Forna  (detailed graph). (c) The underlying representation of the RNA molecule in jViz.RNA 4.0 (compressed graph). (d) The representation also follows a tree structure where the first loop (which will always contain the 3’ and 5’ nucleotides) is the root, and the loops with only one stem attached to them always acting as leaves in the tree.
