A Folding Algorithm for Extended RNA Secondary Structures

Christian Höner zu Siederdissen, Stephan H. Bernhart, Peter F. Stadler, Ivo L. Hofacker


PREPRINT 11-002: [ PDF ]


Bioinformatics (2011) 27 (13): i129-i136


Motivation:<br> RNA secondary structure contains many non-canonical base pairs of different pair families. Successful prediction of these structural features leads to improved secondary structures with applications in tertiary structure prediction and simultaneous folding and alignment.<br> Results:<br> We present a theoretical model capturing both RNA pair families and extended secondary structure motifs with shared nucleotides using 2-diagrams. We accompany this model with a number of programs for parameter optimization and structure prediction.<br> Availability:<br> All sources (optimization routines, RNA folding, RNA evaluation, extended secondary structure visualization) are published under the GPLv3 and available at <a href=""><tt></tt></a>
