DIAL (dihedral alignment) is a web-based tool for RNA sequence alignment based on structures. The DIAL algorithm does not require a reference genome and utilizes nucleotide sequence, dihedral angle, and nucleotide base-pairing similarity. The DIAL includes functions for Needleman-Wunsch (global), Smith-Waterman (local), motif search (global-semi global) alignments, and a viewer for 3-dimensional superposition of query and target.
