Abstract

For many RNA molecules, secondary structure rather than primary sequence is the evolutionarily conserved feature. No programs have yet been published that allow searching a sequence database for homologs of a single RNA molecule on the basis of secondary structure.

Attention Score in Context

This research output has an Altmetric Attention Score of 9. This is our high-level measure of the quality and quantity of online attention that it has received. This Attention Score, as well as the ranking and number of research outputs shown below, was calculated when the research output was last mentioned on 23 November 2008.
All research outputs
#381,050
of 3,630,009 outputs
Outputs from BMC Bioinformatics
#312
of 2,289 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#312,850
of 2,727,806 outputs
Outputs of similar age from BMC Bioinformatics
#310
of 2,161 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 3,630,009 research outputs across all sources so far. Compared to these this one has done well and is in the 89th percentile: it's in the top 25% of all research outputs ever tracked by Altmetric.
So far Altmetric has tracked 2,289 research outputs from this source. They receive a mean Attention Score of 4.3. This one has done well, scoring higher than 86% of its peers.
Older research outputs will score higher simply because they've had more time to accumulate mentions. To account for age we can compare this Altmetric Attention Score to the 2,727,806 tracked outputs that were published within six weeks on either side of this one in any source. This one has done well, scoring higher than 88% of its contemporaries.
We're also able to compare this research output to 2,161 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one. This one has done well, scoring higher than 85% of its contemporaries.
