Table 6 Accuracy of new score function. The comparison of new score function of MXSCARNA and the old one which was used in SCARNA in terms of pairwise alignment. The SPS and MCC values (%) are used as accuracy measure for alignments. R100 is a dataset which consists of 100 pairwise alignments chosen randomly from tRNA and 5SrRNA families in Rfam 7.0 database [34] and percid is a sequence identitly balanced dataset which also consists of 100 pairwise alignments from these families.
