Long-awaited practical multiple alignment tool for structural RNA sequences is released by a research group of National Institute of Advanced Industrial Science and Technology (AIST) and Graduate School of Frontier Sciences, University of Tokyo. The tool is named Murlet and its web server is readily available. The source code is released under public domain.
Katoh, T. and Suzuki, T. (U. Tokyo), recently published a novel computational algorithm to predict efficacy of an siRNA from its sequence data. Their web server siExplorer; an implementation of their algorithm is available on-line.
A happy new year from ncRNA.org! We updated our databases for fRNAdb and UCSC Genome Browser For Functional RNA as of Jan. 9, 2007. Major changes include replacement of H-inv cDNAs with current release (rel.3). UCSC Genome Browser is now based on original v146.
We added newly identified 244 human miRNAs to the "Known miRNA" track of our UCSC GenomeBrowser for Functional RNAs.
Recently, fRNAdb is accepted by Nucleic Acids Research Database Issue. Free full article text is available from NAR on-line web site. Please be sure to check this out !
