[…] , integrating HD seed matching and a sensitive local structural alignment tool provides a complementary ncRNA search method to existing sequence alignment-based implementations. Besides FOLDALIGN and PLAST-ncRNA, other local ncRNA structural alignment tools or classification methods that integrate more features can be applied to examining HD seed hits.We plan to apply this method to ncRNA identifi […]
