Molecular Functions of Long Non Coding RNAs in Plants

PMCID: 3899965
PMID: 24704849
DOI: 10.3390/genes3010176

[…] [], genscan [], estscan2 [], angle [] and orf-predictor []. more sophisticated bioinformatics tools for estimating the protein-coding potential of a rna sequence include critica [], diana-est [], cstminer [], conc [], coding potential calculator [], integrated ncrna finder [] and rnacode []. the in silico approach has been successfully applied to identifying lncrnas in both plants [] […]


Accurate discrimination of conserved coding and non coding regions through multiple indicators of evolutionary dynamics

PMCID: 2758873
PMID: 19737408
DOI: 10.1186/1471-2105-10-282

[…] used - suggesting that, using the features developed here, a relatively small number of instances can adequately represent the diversity of evolutionary dynamics of coding and non-coding csts., cstminer [,] is an application previously developed by our group to identify csts and classify them as coding or non-coding based on their evolutionary dynamics. it relies on a single scoring […]


Genome wide identification of coding and non coding conserved sequence tags in human and mouse genomes

PMCID: 2442843
PMID: 18547402
DOI: 10.1186/1471-2164-9-277

[…] classification heavily dependent on the quality of the annotation of the genomes under analysis and it is obviously less applicable to new – poorly annotated – genomes., we previously developed cstminer, a tool that does not suffer from these limitations as it identifies conserved sequences (conserved sequence tags – csts) and classifies them as coding or non-coding by evaluating […]


Huntingtin gene evolution in Chordata and its peculiar features in the ascidian Ciona genus

PMCID: 1636649
PMID: 17092333
DOI: 10.1186/1471-2164-7-288

[…] not further analysed. assessment of the coding nature of detected csts was done through the computation of a coding potential score (cps) on the total cst and on cst sliding windows and, using the cstminer program [,]. cps values higher than 7.71 indicate a coding potential of the related cst, and cps values lower than 6.74 indicate noncoding csts, with an estimated false positive rate < 1% […]


Distinguishing Protein Coding from Non Coding RNAs through Support Vector Machines

PMCID: 1449884
PMID: 16683024
DOI: 10.1371/journal.pgen.0020029

[…] within cdnas, expressed sequence tags [ests], or prokaryotic genomic dnas) have been applied to this task. the analysis of dna alignments and codon usage is one of the most widely used strategies. cstminer [] identifies conserved sequence tags by comparing cross-species dna alignments, based on the observation that in homologous regions, synonymous changes (i.e., base changes without amino […]
