Assists users to study the associations between miRNAs and diseases based on their similarities. KBMF-MDI uses sequence and function information of miRNAs to estimate similarity in miRNAs. This algorithm can be used to deduce potential miRNA-disease associations thanks to integration of several types of data sources. This method can be useful for researchers that desire to find and predict unknown miRNA-disease associations.
