psRNATarget, a plant small RNA target analysis server, which features two important analysis functions: 1) reverse complementary matching between miRNA and target transcript using a proven scoring schema, and 2) target site accessibility evaluation by calculating unpaired energy (UPE) required to “open” secondary structure around miRNA’s target site on mRNA. PsRNATarget incorporates recent discoveries in plant miRNA target recognition, e.g. it distinguishes translational and post-transcriptional inhibition, and it reports the number of miRNA/target site pairs that may affect miRNA binding activity to target transcript.
