Melting computes, for a nucleic acid duplex, the enthalpy and entropy of the helix-coil transition, and then its melting temperatures. Three types of hybridisation are possible: DNA/DNA, DNA/RNA, and RNA/RNA. The program uses the method of nearest-neighbors. The set of thermodynamic parameters can easily be changed, for instance following an experimental breakthrough.
