MXSCARNA (Multiplex Stem Candidate Aligner for RNAs) is a multiple alignment tool for RNA sequences using progressive alignment based on pairwise structural alignment algorithm of SCARNA.
This software is fast enough for large scale analyses, while the accuracies of the alignments are better than or comparable with the existing algorithms which are computationally much more expensive in time and memory.
