RNACluster 1.0 – RNA Secondary Structure Comparison and Clustering

RNACluster 1.0


RNACluster is an integrated computational software which implements 6 common structure distances to measure the (dis)similarity of RNA secondary structures including base pair distance, mountain distance, morphological distance, tree edit distance, string edit distance and our in-house structure matrix distance, and one effective cluster approach for the ensemble clustering using a minimum spanning tree (MST) based algorithm. RNACluster can be used to study the characteristics of RNA secondary structures, RNA structure conformational switches, RNA conformational energy landscapes and RNA secondary structure prediction based on the clustering of structure ensemble.
