The discovery potential of RNA processing profiles

Nucleic Acids Res
PMCID: 5814818
PMID: 29155959
DOI: 10.1093/nar/gkx1115

[…] We assessed the accuracy of SeRPeNT by performing a comparison against BlockClust (), an unsupervised method that predicts known sncRNA families from sncRNA-seq data. We evaluated the accuracy to detect known miRNAs, tRNAs and snoRNAs from the GENCODE annotation () using […]


A Review on Recent Computational Methods for Predicting Noncoding RNAs

Biomed Res Int
PMCID: 5434267
PMID: 28553651
DOI: 10.1155/2017/9139504

[…] ray [] is used to scan the long and macro non-protein-coding RNAs related to cell-cycle, p53, and STAT3 pathways. DGE is used for discovering novel polyA+noncoding transcripts within human genome []. BlockClust [] tries to predict the ncRNA modified after its transcription by combining the sequence and secondary structure information with a graph-kernel SVM, whose novel thinking lies in a new stra […]


Emerging applications of read profiles towards the functional annotation of the genome

Front Genet
PMCID: 4437211
PMID: 26042150
DOI: 10.3389/fgene.2015.00188

[…] eepBlockAlign, it is based on a graph-kernel method trained on different read profile features such as minimum read length and entropy. Due to the nature of its supervised training, the prediction of BlockClust is limited to known ncRNA classes, whose read profiles have been used for training the computational model. Furthermore, primarily due to low number of snoRNAs in the input dataset, all the […]
