RNAdvisor: a comprehensive benchmarking tool for the measure and prediction of RNA structural model quality

Abstract

RNA is a complex macromolecule that plays central roles in the cell. While it is well known that its structure is directly related to its functions, understanding and predicting RNA structures is challenging. Assessing the real or predictive quality of a structure is also at stake with the complex 3D possible conformations of RNAs. Metrics have been developed to measure model quality while scoring functions aim at assigning quality to guide the discrimination of structures without a known and solved reference. Throughout the years, many metrics and scoring functions have been developed, and no unique assessment is used nowadays. Each developed assessment method has its specificity and might be complementary to understanding structure quality. Therefore, to evaluate RNA 3D structure predictions, it would be important to calculate different metrics and/or scoring functions. For this purpose, we developed RNAdvisor, a comprehensive automated software that integrates and enhances the accessibility of existing metrics and scoring functions. In this paper, we present our RNAdvisor tool, as well as state-of-the-art existing metrics, scoring functions and a set of benchmarks we conducted for evaluating them.
