Provides a collection of noncoding RNA sequences. Rfam is an online resource where RNA sequences are grouped into “families” and “clans” on the basis of nucleotide sequence and secondary structure homology. It includes many different types of ncRNA genes, cisregulatory elements and intronic elements, all annotated in as many species as possible. This database is searched for homologous sequences.
