helix: Helices predicted by TRANSAT with p-values

Description Usage Format Value References


This data set contains two sets of helices and a multiple sequence alignment. The two sets of helices are helices and known which are helices predicted to occur for RNA sequence RF00458 by the program TRANSAT, and experimentally proposed structure of the same sequence, respectively. fasta is the seed homologues for the multiple sequence alignment obtained from the RFAM database.




helix and known are 4 column data frames, where columns i and j denote the left-most and right-most basepairs, the length is the number of consecutive basepairs the helix contains, and the value is assigned to each helix on a row.

fasta is an array of named characters of length 7.


fasta is an array of strings, helix and known are data.frames in “helix” format.
