GANN 2.0 – Machine Learning tool for the Detection of Conserved Features in DNA

GANN 2.0

:: DESCRIPTION

GANN (Genetic Algorithm Neural Networks) is a machine learning method designed with the complexities of transcriptional regulation in mind.The key principle is that regulatory regions are composed of features such as consensus strings, characterized binding sites, and DNA structural properties. GANN identifies these features in a set of sequences, and then identifies combinations of features that can differentiate between the positive set (sequences with known or putative regulatory function) and the negative set (sequences with no regulatory function). Once these features have been identified, they can be used to classify new sequences of unknown function.

DIAL – 3-Dimensional RNA Structural Alignment and Motif Detection

DIAL

:: DESCRIPTION

DIAL is a web server for 3-dimensional RNA structural alignment (global and local) and for motif detection. DIAL (DIhedral ALignment) runs in time that is quadratic in input length by performing an alignment which accounts for (i) pseudo-dihedral and/or dihedral angle similarity, (ii) nucleotide sequence similarity, (iii) nucleotide base-pairing similarity.
