Is there a database of oligonucleotide duplex sequences and their melting temperatures

I am looking for melting temperatures of oligonucleotide duplexes, but I am having trouble finding data. Can be DNA-DNA, DNA-RNA, or RNA-RNA duplexes, native or modified nucleotides.

How many ML tree should I build?

I created a phylogenetic tree of 328 species using RAxML. I run the ML algorithm 20 times and I chose the best tree (the one with the highest likelihood). The choice of 20 iterations was based on a ...

Sequence Alignment for sequences with the same length

I am doing research on a new method of optimizing sequence alignment process (Needleman - Wunsch algorithm) but the idea would only work with sequences that have the same length. I am wondering if ...

Is there a method/web server to generate Position-specific scoring matrix (PSSM) for nucleotide sequences (DNA/RNA)?

Just like, PSI-BLAST is avaialble to generate a PSSM matrix for peptides, is there a web server where we can generate PSSM for DNA/RNA? I want to find homologous sequences to a given RNA sequence.
