Provides a miRNA target prediction method. HuMiTar is an approach composed of two main steps: (i) it first determines candidate targets by investigating 3' untranslated regions (UTR) of a given mRNA; and (2) then, results are filtered thanks to a composite scoring function. The application aims to assist users in understanding translational gene regulation by microRNAs.
