The number of known noncoding RNA genes is expanding rapidly. Computational analysis of genome sequences, which has been revolutionary for protein gene analysis, should also be able to address questions of the number and diversity of noncoding RNA genes. However, noncoding RNAs present computational genomics with a new set of challenges.
