p-TAREF refines the process of microRNA target identification through incorporation of local interaction information for microRNA and target region in the target sequence as well as estimates the candidature of being a true microRNA target on the basis of intrinsic sequence property around the target site determined by varying dinculeotide density profile. Also by considering dinculeotide density we incorporate the nearest neighbor approach of RNA structure determination.
