[…] an rna because of thermal fluctuations. we also benchmarked rsample for sequences that populate a single structure, and its performance was similar to other methods that can use shape data: rme (), rnaprob (), rnaprobing (), rnasc () and rnastructure fold ()., an overview of rsample is shown in figure . the procedure uses two partition function calculations to model structure (,). a partition […]

[…] database of protein sequences. with the same approach, pprint combines evolutionary information from pssms with svms, thus predicting rna‐binding sites with an accuracy of 0.81. similarly, rnaprob employs a smoothed pssm encoding scheme to predict rna‐binding sites on proteins and shows an accuracy of 0.89. slightly different types of physicochemical properties are combined […]

[…] risp, which is a hybrid rna-binding site predictor which uses svms in conjunction with pssms and achieved a 61.0% increase in sensitivity and an 83.3% increase in specificity. a similar method, rnaprob, using svm and a novel smoothed pssm encoding method, was developed by cheng et al. [] and it gave better performance than the then current state-of-the-art systems. in 2010, li et al. [] […]

DOI: 10.1371/journal.pone.0139731

[…] disordered nature of a protein may offer an additional layer of information that can complement and enhance the performance of rna-binding site prediction software, such as rnabindr [], naps[] or rnaprob[], even though some of these methods already take evolutionary information into account. while the accuracy of these tools is progressively getting higher, it was shown recently […]

DOI: 10.1371/journal.pone.0075542

[…] time to generate position-specific scoring matrix (pssm) in homology extension. the homology extension procedure has been intensively used in many bioinformatics software, i.e., psipred , memsat3 , rnaprob , psi-coffee , and etc. however, the effects of database sizes and sequence identities on prediction accuracy have not been fully investigated. the speed of a prediction procedure […]
