Bug#441840: ITP: infernal -- RNA sequence comparisons

Package: wnpp
Severity: wishlist
Owner: Steffen Moeller <steffen_moeller@gmx.de>

* Package name    : infernal
  Version         : 0.81

  Description     : RNA sequence comparisons

 Infernal ("INFERence of RNA ALignment") is for searching DNA sequence
 databases for RNA structure and sequence similarities. It is an
 implementation of a special case of profile stochastic context-free
 grammars called covariance models (CMs). A CM is like a sequence
 profile, but it scores a combination of sequence consensus and RNA
 secondary structure consensus, so in many cases, it is more capable of
 identifying RNA homologs that conserve their secondary structure
 more than their primary sequence.
 The tool is an integral component of the Rfam database.

The package seems basically fine and will appear in the Debian-Med svn
in the next few minutes to fish for comments.

Kind regards
