Non Coding RNAs in Lung Cancer: Contribution of Bioinformatics Analysis to the Development of Non Invasive Diagnostic Tools

PMCID: 5295003
PMID: 28035947
DOI: 10.3390/genes8010008

[…] chine learning classifiers [,,], whereas Pprint predicts RNA binding sites using evolutionary position-specific scoring matrix (PSSM) information combined with a support vector machine (SVM) [,]. The KYG algorithm focuses on the structure and calculates binding regions by applying a position-specific multiple sequence profile on protein-RNA structures from PDB, also without biochemical or function […]


A Large Scale Assessment of Nucleic Acids Binding Site Prediction Programs

PLoS Comput Biol
PMCID: 4683125

[…] ameter. aaRNA was used by inputting the structure file with default parameters. RNABindR and RNABindRPlus were predicted with default parameters, while removing 95% sequence identity in RNABindRPlus. KYG was predicted with command line using “method_type = 8” option. RBscore_SVM was based on the training set of R246. DBS-PSSM, DBS-Pred, RBRIdent, PPRInt, PRBR, DNABind, RBRDetector and ProteDNA wer […]


UPF201 Archaeal Specific Family Members Reveal Structural Similarity to RNA Binding Proteins but Low Likelihood for RNA Binding Function
