gsa4mirna – Integrated gene set analysis for microRNA studies

gsa4mirna – Integrated gene set analysis for microRNA studies

Functional interpretation of miRNA expression data is currently done in a three step procedure: select differentially expressed miRNAs, find their target genes, and carry out gene set overrepresentation analysis Nevertheless, major limitations of this approach have already been described at ...

An evaluation of microRNA alignment techniques

An evaluation of microRNA alignment techniques

Genomic alignment of small RNA (smRNA) sequences such as microRNAs poses considerable challenges due to their short length (∼21 nucleotides [nt]) as well as the large size and complexity of plant and animal genomes. While several tools have been developed ...

Recommendations for differential expression analysis and biomarker discovery small RNA-Seq experiments in an age of liquid biopsies

Recommendations for differential expression analysis and biomarker discovery small RNA-Seq experiments in an age of liquid biopsies

Small RNA-Seq has emerged as a powerful tool in transcriptomics, gene expression profiling and biomarker discovery. Sequencing cell-free nucleic acids, particularly microRNA (miRNA), from liquid biopsies additionally provides exciting possibilities for molecular diagnostics, and might help establish disease-specific biomarker signatures. ...

TarPmiR – a new approach for microRNA target site prediction

TarPmiR – a new approach for microRNA target site prediction

The identification of microRNA (miRNA) target sites is fundamentally important for studying gene regulation. There are dozens of computational methods available for miRNA target site prediction. Despite their existence, we still cannot reliably identify miRNA target sites, partially due to ...
