Structural alignment has been shown to be an effective computational method to identify structural noncoding RNA (ncRNA) candidates as ncRNAs are known to be conserved in secondary structures. However, the complexity of the structural alignment algorithms becomes higher when the structure has pseudoknots. Even for the simplest type of pseudoknots (simple(More)
Cancer is a disease characterized largely by the accumulation of out-of-control somatic mutations during the lifetime of a patient. Distinguishing driver mutations from passenger mutations has posed a challenge in modern cancer research. With the advanced development of microarray experiments and clinical studies, a large numbers of candidate cancer genes(More)
