RNAcentral is an open resource that provides a unified platform for accessing non-coding RNA sequences from a broad range of ncRNA databases. Anton Petrov has just announced a 3rd release. Along with a slew of new features, RNAcentral is now powered by our nhmmer which they’ve found to be more sensitive than Exonerate. They’re using the recently-released HMMER3.1b2, a stable beta release that implements our new accelerated DNA search based on seed finding with the FM index data structure (I’ll describe that here once we get the paper submitted … soon). Exciting days.
