Comparing RNA Structures with Biologically Relevant Operations Cannot Be Done without Strong Combinatorial Restrictions
Abstract. Arc-annotated sequences are useful for representing structural information of RNAs and have been extensively used for comparing RNA structures in both terms of sequence and structural similarities. Among the many paradigms referring to arc-annotated sequences and RNA structures comparison (see [2] for more details), the most important one is the general edit distance. The problem of computing an edit distance between two non-crossing arc-annotated sequences was introduced in [5]. The introduced model uses edit operations that involve either single letters or pairs of letters (never considered separately) and is solvable in polynomial-time [12]. To account for other possible RNA structural evolutionary events, new edit operations, allowing to consider either silmutaneously or separately letters of a pair were introduced in [9]; unfortunately at the cost of computational tractability. It has been proved that comparing two RNA secondary structures using a full set of biologicall...
