RNA gene alignments
The covariance models are taxonomically filtered before alignment, so that structural RNA features that have never been annotated in metazoan species are not inappropriately aligned. The alignment is performed with cmscan, from the Infernal software suite.
RNA gene alignments are visible as browser tracks ('Rfam models' and 'tRNA models'); selecting an alignment in the genome browser displays metadata such as the description and the secondary structure.
