Predicting Consensus Structures for RNA Alignments Via Pseudo-Energy Minimization

Abstract

Thermodynamic processes with free energy parameters are often used in algorithms that solve the free energy minimization problem to predict secondary structures of single RNA sequences. While results from these algorithms are promising, an observation is that single sequence-based methods have moderate accuracy and more information is needed to improve on… (More)
