New families of human regulatory RNA structures identified by comparative analysis of vertebrate genomes

New families of human regulatory RNA structures identified by comparative analysis of vertebrate genomes

Overview

We have screened a 41-way vertebrate genomic alignment for structural RNA families. We have identified novel families of human paralogous structural RNAs using the EvoFam family-identification pipeline, which is based on structured regions located by EvoFold. These pages present the resulting identified familes as well as supplementary data sets, such as initial structural RNA predictions, genomic input regions, multiple alignment segments, etc.

The analysis is based on data from the "29 mammals sequencing and analysis consortium" (Lindblad-Toh et al.). See references below.

All genomic coordinates are relative to the Human March 2006 (hg18) assembly.
