BRAliBase: Benchmark RNA Alignments.

The plethora of tools for ncRNA analyses is often overwhelming for both biologist and bioinformatician. We aim to provide benchmarks that show the conditions that current bioinformatic approaches work well. We also hope to provide incentives for improving our ncRNA analysis toolkit for problems such as structure prediction, sequence alignment, homology search, phylogenetic modelling and ncRNA gene-finding.
