A procedure to improve the prediction of miRNA targets. The HOCTAR procedure is based on the integration of expression profiling and sequence-based miRNA target recognition softwares. HOCTAR database (db) is the first and unique database to use transcriptomic data to score putative miRNA targets looking at the expression behaviour of their host genes, and it includes and re-analyzes all miRNA target predictions generated by softwares such as miRanda, TargetScan and PicTar.
