We're looking for approaches to the alignment of RNA structures.
The RNA structures may be represented by trees of
structure features/nucleotides, or by expressions using brackets.
Up to now, we're aware of the following approaches:
*Shapiro & Zhang (CABIOS, 6(4):309-318, 1990),
*Hesper, Hogeweg & Konings (Mol. Biol. Evol. (1987) 4(3), 300-314),
*Hogeweg & Stadler (implemented in RNAdistance in the Vienna package 1994).
Please, educate us about any approaches that we've missed !!
And -- we'd be glad to listen to your wisdom and experiences !!
Which is your favorite ?
