Bioinformatic tools for microRNA dissection

Nucleic Acids Res
PMCID: 4705652
PMID: 26578605
DOI: 10.1093/nar/gkv1221

[…] c integration in biological pathways remains incomplete. Some online tools now deal with miRNA-related pathways (Table ). The studies that have used these tools are reported in Supporting Material S2.ElMMo () is a Bayesian target prediction algorithm that uses evolutionary conservation and pathway analysis and can be applied to sequences from any clade of species. The algorithm automatically infer […]


Hunting the Needle in the Haystack: A Guide to Obtain Biologically Meaningful MicroRNA Targets

Int J Mol Sci
PMCID: 4264166
PMID: 25383673
DOI: 10.3390/ijms151120266

[…] emented the search for seed:seed match pairs. However, it is a distinguishing feature between tools how stringently the “seed criterion” is applied: While the algorithms TargetScan [,,,], PicTar [,], ElMMo [], MirTarget2 [] miRWalk [], and miRmap [] use stringent pairing between seed and seed match, PITA (Probability of Interaction by Target Accessibility) [], Miranda [], DIANA-microT [,] and RNA2 […]


Fifteen years SIB Swiss Institute of Bioinformatics: life science databases, tools and support

Nucleic Acids Res
PMCID: 4086091
PMID: 24792157
DOI: 10.1093/nar/gku380

[…] irZ (http://www.mirz.unibas.ch) () is a resource that integrates miRNA expression data for human, mouse, rat, zebrafish, worm and fruitfly small RNAs and miRNA target predictions obtained through the ElMMo algorithm (). The resource has been extended to include additional experimental evidence for miRNA binding sites, obtained through crosslinking and immuno-precipitation (CLIP) of Argonaute prote […]


Advances in the Techniques for the Prediction of microRNA Targets

Int J Mol Sci
PMCID: 3645737
PMID: 23591837
DOI: 10.3390/ijms14048179

[…] ncing the specificity of prediction for functional target sites, many computational studies also incorporated the evolution conservation [,,–] or flagged conserved putative targets [,]. Particularly, ElMMo [] incorporated such conservation statistics in a more general, rigorous and miRNA-dependent manner. Also, Friedman et al. developed a quantitative method for evaluating evolutionary conservatio […]


Integrative Approaches for microRNA Target Prediction: Combining Sequence Information and the Paired mRNA and miRNA Expression Profiles

PMCID: 3583062
PMID: 23467572
DOI: 10.2174/1574893611308010008

[…] he rank list of target mRNAs sorted by their correlations with the corresponding miRNA could also be provided. MirZ [] incorporates smiRNAdb, a database containning miRNA sequencing profiles, and the ElMMo miRNA target prediction algorithm. It also integrates mRNA expression data and allow user to restrict the target prediction to specific mRNAs that expressed in a given cell type. mimiRNA [] inte […]


One Decade of Development and Evolution of MicroRNA Target Prediction Algorithms

PMCID: 5054202
PMID: 23200135
DOI: 10.1016/j.gpb.2012.10.001

[…] for the functional sites. To characterize miRNA function, associations between the predicted targets and biochemical pathways (KEGG) are searched. EiMMo is available online (http://www.mirz.unibas.ch/ElMMo2/).DIANA : this algorithm measures the goodness of an interaction based on its specific characteristics. Each gene is weighted taking into consideration conserved as well as non-conserved sites. […]
