RNA Type: Multiple classes
Overview: The RNA family database (Rfam) is a collection of RNA families represented by multiple sequence alignments, covariance models and profile Stochastic Context-Free Grammars.It stores information related to sequence, secondary structure, taxonomy, alignment and phylogenetic tree of different organisms.
- Similarity: search sequences against Rfam data. First, a pre-search with the program WU-BLAST is performed, followed by a secondary structural search using covariance models with the INFERNAL package.
- Keyword: search by RNA family name, EMBL ID or accession number, ncRNA name/class, NCBI taxonomic classes.
- Tabular: search by ID, accession, type, seed/full, average length, sequence identity and description (in Rfam families or families with 3D structures); by species, kingdom, families, region or genome size (in genomes search); ID, accession, number of families or description (in clans search); or by number of structures (in families with 3D structures.
