Name SCARNA Local Multiple

"SCARNA_LM (SCARNA Local Multiple) is a local multiple aligner for RNA sequences. It is based on a discriminative pairwise alignment model which incorporates secondary structure features as base pairing probability calculrated by Rfold, and uses an efficient local multiple alignment construction procedure proposed by Phuong et al for local multiple alignment of protein sequences (cited from the original site).
