Serarching for miRNAs by their transcriptomic profiles

Jul 31 2013

2013-07-29: RTH publish a new type of search for microRNA genes. In constrast to more traditional search strategies using the composition of the genomic DNA sequence, the strategy here directly aiming at exploiting the characteristic "finger print" microRNAs leave transcriptomic (RNA-seq) data. The search tool is available via the mirdba webserver. The work is described in our recent paper: "MicroRNA discovery by similarity search to a database of RNA-seq profiles".
