This is the home page for using ncRNA to test the accuracy of whole-genome multiple alignments.
We evaluate the alignment accuracy of certain noncoding regions using ncRNA alignments from Rfam as a reference. We inspect the MULTIZ alignments from the UCSC Genome Browser for all the human sequences in the Rfam seed alignment.
All imperfect alignments and Infernal results are available for viewing using
here to view the results.
