[…] with aligning a pseudoknot structure with a sequence or genome. through the alignment, the sequence is folded and its structure is predicted. xu et al. [] presented a different method, called rna sampler, which can simultaneously fold and align two or multiple rna sequences considering pseudoknots without known structures. similar techniques were implemented in dafs [] and simulfold []. […]

[…] sampling methodology, on the other hand, extensions of the technique to multiple sequences have received limited attention. although a heuristic iterative sampling methodology has been proposed in rna sampler (), a true stochastic sampling framework has not been previously developed due to the difficulty in computing the corresponding partition function for the multiple homolog scenario., […]

[…] identification of novel regulatory rnas are strongly desired to facilitate our exploration of gene regulation mechanisms and regulatory networks. we present a new computational program named rssvm (rna sampler+support vector machine), which employs support vector machines (svms) for efficient identification of functional rna motifs from random rna secondary structures. rssvm uses a set […]

[…] score (sps) criterion. as a basis for predicting common secondary structure, the accuracy of the present method is comparable to or rather higher than those of the current leading methods such as rna sampler. the x-ins-i framework can be used for building a multiple rna alignment from any combination of algorithms for pairwise rna alignment and base-pairing probability. the source code […]

[…] for rna sequences was described by sankoff [], but to date only pairwise implementations (e.g. foldalign [], dynalign []) or heuristics for multiple sequences (e.g. foldalignm [], locarna [], rna sampler []) exist., we present a novel approach to the problem: using markov chain monte carlo in a simulated annealing framework, we sample multiple alignments and secondary structures.
