with questions or concerns about miRNAminer.
miRNAminer is a web-based tool
used for homologous miRNA gene
search in several species.
Given a search query, candidate homologs are
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
be relaxed. miRNAminer can be used prior to depositing novel miRNAs in
public databases (such as miRbase).
NEW: See also microRNAviewer, a global view of homologous miRNA genes in many species.
