This website started as an attempt to see if some sequences from the "RNA World" (for example, ribozymes) might have been "fossilized" or conserved as DNA sequences. The search eventually expanded to include sequences shared by viroids, retroviral kissing loops, G-RNAs, promoters, protein binding sites, conserved sequence blocks and intron/exon junctions..
The name "snippets" is meant to describe short lengths of nucleic acids and should not be confused with SNPs; single nucleotide polymorphisms or "Snips".
Snippets 2 compares known hammerhead ribozyme conserved sequences and RNA polymerase binding sites at the transcription initiation sites of open reading frames in Human Papilloma Virus 16.
Snippets 4 compares conserved viroid hammerhead sequences and the polymerase binding site of the Methanococcus transcription initiation complex
