All the tools you need to analyse your miRNAs


Novel miRNA/Precursor Prediction

A web-based tool used for homologous miRNA gene search in several species. Given a search query, candidate homologs are identified using BLAST search and then tested for their known miRNA properties, such as secondary structure, energy, alignment and conservation, in order to assess their fidelity. Default parameters are stringent, though these can be relaxed. miRNAminer can be used prior to depositing novel miRNAs in public databases.
