RNAcast - Welcome

RNAcast (RNA consensus abstract shapes technique) is an alternative to the Sankoff algorithm for multiple RNA folding.

For a family of RNA sequences, our method explicitly and independently enumerates the near-optimal abstract shape space, and predicts as the consensus an abstract shape common to all sequences, and for each sequence, the thermodynamically best structure which has this abstract shape.

NEW: RNAcast is now part of the RNAshapes package, available for download as well as online. For using RNAcast online select "consensus shapes" from the submission page.
