Automatic Detection of Conserved Base Pairing Patterns in RNA Virus Genomes

Abstract

Almost all RNA molecules--and consequently also almost all subsequences of a large RNA molecule-form secondary structures. The presence of secondary structure in itself therefore does not indicate any functional significance. In fact, we cannot expect a conserved secondary structure for all parts of a viral genome or a mRNA, even if there is a significant… (More)
