Predicts miRNA-disease associations. Ifmda uses a computational method that establishes disease similarity subnetwork with the miRNA one by combining multiple data sources. This software incorporates multiple data sources where the similarity is composed of disease semantic similarity and disease functional similarity. It measures the miRNA similarity by using the miRNA-target and miRNA-IncRNA associations.
