PLAST-ncRNA citation


Genome scale NCRNA homology search using a Hamming distance based filtration strategy

BMC Bioinformatics
PMCID: 3311100
PMID: 22536896
DOI: 10.1186/1471-2105-13-S3-S12

[…] identification framework that is complementary to existing sequence comparison tools. by integrating a filtration step based on hamming distance and ncrna alignment programs such as foldalign or plast-ncrna, the proposed ncrna search framework can identify ncrnas that lack strong sequence conservation. in addition, as the ratio of transition and transversion mutation is often used […]
