  1. Contaminated datasets were constructed by adding a single randomly picked sequence from a different family to each family tested. RNAspa was able to produce good results for all families while RNAcast was unable to find a consensus structure for six of the ten families in a contaminated dataset. See [Additional File 8] for raw data.
