Foldalign 2.5: multithreaded implementation for pairwise structural RNA alignment

  title={Foldalign 2.5: multithreaded implementation for pairwise structural RNA alignment},
  author={Daniel Sundfeld and Jakob Hull Havgaard and Alba Cristina Magalhaes Alves de Melo and Jan Gorodkin},
MOTIVATION Structured RNAs can be hard to search for as they often are not well conserved in their primary structure and are local in their genomic or transcriptomic context. Thus, the need for tools which in particular can make local structural alignments of RNAs is only increasing. RESULTS To meet the demand for both large-scale screens and hands on analysis through web servers, we present a new multithreaded version of Foldalign. We substantially improve execution time while maintaining… CONTINUE READING
