The rapid growth of sequenced genomes and the discovery of numerous novel RNA species has made the development of methods for the computational identification of genes encoding functional RNA a high priority. Recent developments of algorithms for RNA gene prediction are based on diverse criteria, including location of promoters and terminators, sequence conservation among related genomes, RNA base-pairing and nucleotide composition.
