Conserved RNA Secondary Structures in Viral Genomes: A Survey
Ivo L. Hofacker, Peter F.\ Stadler, Roman Stocsits
The genomes of RNA viruses often carry conserved RNA structures that perform vital functions during the life cycle of the virus. Such structures can be detected using a combination of structure prediction and co-variation analysis. Here we present results from pilot studies on a variety of viral families performed during bioinformatics computer lab courses in past years.
