BlastR is a new method for searching Non-Coding RNAs in databases. The strategy we adopted relies on the use of the mutual information embedded in di-nucleotides. We have shown that this approach has better sensitivity and specifity than other softwares with comparable computational cost. BlastR package is a perl wrapper for BlastP and it is part of the T-Coffee distribution.
