All the tools you need to analyse your miRNAs

mirTools 2.0


Target Prediction Novel miRNA/Precursor Prediction Sequencing Analysis Target Functional Analysis Differential Expression Analysis Known miRNA Identification All in 1 Tools IsomiRs Identification


Analysis Scheme:
MirTools 2.0 is updated version of mirTools, which was developed to comprehensive characterize the small RNA transcriptome obtained from high-throughput sequencing. It enables user to: detect and profile non-coding RNA (tRNA, snRNA, snoRNA, rRNA ans piRNA); obtain detailed annotation ifmromation about known miRNA (absolute/realtive reds count and most abundant tags); identify the microRNA targeted genes and their detailed functional annotate; perform the comparison of many samples and identify the differentially expressed non-coding RNAs between experimental groups; discovery the novel miRNAs.
