RNAcast (RNA consensus abstract shapes technique) is an alternative to the Sankoff algorithm for multiple RNA folding. For a family of RNA sequences, the method explicitly and independently enumerates the near-optimal abstract shape space, and predicts as the consensus an abstract shape common to all sequences, and for each sequence, the thermodynamically best structure which has this abstract shape.
