The natural-mode structure is the structure predicted to be most stable for a given sequence. It is synonymous with the minimum free energy structure. To view this structure, enable "natural mode" by clicking the double arrow icon at the bottom left of the workspace. Spacebar is the hotkey to toggle between views of the natural-mode structure and target structure.

Note: The "natural-mode structure" is not necessarily the structure that forms in nature. When discussing lab results, referring to the natural mode structure as the MFE structure can help avoid confusion.
