[…] structures taken from rna starnd where the pseudoknot-free structures belonged to rfam [] (see additional file : table s3). we compared rkalign with three other tools: carna [], rnaforester [] and rsmatch []. rnaforester, included in the widely used vienna rna package [], is a versatile rna structure alignment tool. like rkalign and carna, an option of rnaforester is able to accept as input […]

[…] software package called infernal (, a variety of other computational tools for rna homology search exist besides infernal.,,, some of the most popular tools are erpin, fastr, rsmatch, rnamotif, rnatops and patscan. infernal is one of the most generally applicable and powerful tools and is the basis for a widely used rna family database (rfam; described below).

[…] approach is often very computationally intensive., a number of programs have been applied to genome-wide identification of novel structured rnas (,), such as rnaz (), rna sampler (), evofold (), rsmatch (), foldalign (), cmfinder (), rnapromo () and locarna (). given the complexity and variety of structured rnas in a genome, the performance of different approaches differs considerably (,,).

[…] to uncover conserved rna structures in utrs. we focused on small stem-loop structures. we compared folded rna structures in utr sequences for orthologous genes by our rna structure alignment tool rsmatch []. similar orthologous structures were then compared in an all-against-all fashion to derive rna structure groups. using cluster analysis and gene ontology (go) information, we identified […]
