NoFold is an approach for characterizing and clustering RNA secondary structures without computational folding or alignment. It works by mapping each RNA sequence of interest to a structural feature space, where each coordinate within the space corresponds to the probabilistic similarity of the sequence to an empirically defined structure model (e.g. Rfam family covariance models). NoFold provides scripts for mapping sequences to this structure space, extracting any robust clusters that are formed, and annotating those clusters with structural and functional information.
