[…] mented and published. For the analysis of miRNA sets, we used the microRNA enrichment analysis and annotation tool miEAA (available at, which relies on the GeneTrail framework, (available at Effects of single miRNAs on pathways have been determined by the miRNA Pathway Dictionary (available at https://mpd.bioinf.uni- […]


Structure and functional impact of seed region variant in MIR 499 gene family in bronchial asthma

PMCID: 5591547
PMID: 28886711
DOI: 10.1186/s12931-017-0648-0

[…] k []. Advanced gene set enrichment analysis was employed using the Gene Trail program with multiple testing correction via false discovery rate (FDR) estimation and significant level at 0.05 ( []. In addition, mfold RNAfold ( and KineFold web-servers ( were conducted to predict the secondary struc […]


HSPs drive dichotomous T cell immune responses via DNA methylome remodelling in antigen presenting cells

Nat Commun
PMCID: 5460028
PMID: 28561043
DOI: 10.1038/ncomms15648

[…] Genomatix Software GmbH). Distribution across TSS and CpG islands was determined using SeqMonk (Babraham Bioinformatics). Transcription factor binding analysis was performed using Genomatix software. Genetrail was used to test for gene ontology analysis using default parameters and Ensembl genes as background for enrichment. Results were corrected for multiple testing using Bonferroni adjustment. […]


MicroRNAs Correlate with Multiple Sclerosis and Neuromyelitis Optica Spectrum Disorder in a Chinese Population

PMCID: 5458669

[…] We used the miEAA ( as a tool to characterize the association of the miRNAs with molecular pathways. MiEAA is based on GeneTrail [] and used for standard enrichment analyses, such as over-representation analysis or gene set enrichment analysis in the context of miRNAs. Adjusted p values <0.05 were considered significa […]
