SPARSE

SPARSE

SPARSE (Sparsified Prediction and Alignment of RNAs based on their structure Ensembles) is a tool to align RNA sequences based on structural properties of RNA ensembles. The SPARSE algorithm uses a Sankoff-style algorithm and runs in quadratic time without heuristics.

Topic

Nucleic acid structure analysis; Sequence analysis
