RNAv – Search Genomes for RNA Secondary Structure Variation



RNAv (RNA secondary structure variation) is a program that searches for RNA secondary structure variations based on the notion of a structure graph to specify the consensus structure of an RNA family.The model for profiling the consensus structure of an RNA family is a conformational graph that specifies the topology of the consensus fold and relationship among helices and unpaired loops. Individual helices and loops are modeled with a restricted Covariance Model and profile HMM, respectively. The fold topology, helices, and loops are trained with an input pasta file that contains a multiple structural alignment for a set of training RNA sequences.
