Global Score

Global Score

To study long transcripts (>1000 nt), we use the fragmentation procedure, which is based on division of protein and RNA sequences into sub-regions. The signal coming from the binding propensities of individual fragments is integrated into a variable called Global Score that predicts the overall interaction ability of a protein-RNA pair. The introduction of Global Score allows the calculation of interactions with long non-coding RNAs, thus extending the general applicability of catRAPID (Bellucci et al. Nat Methods 2011).

The specific running time of our algorithm depends on the jobs queuing on our server, which has been optimized to run Signal Localization. To run the software locally, you should agree to the terms of the Academic License Agreement, which can be found here.
