A glance at subgenomic flavivirus RNAs and microRNAs in flavivirus infections

Virol J
PMCID: 4884392
PMID: 27233361
DOI: 10.1186/s12985-016-0541-3

[…] hese results with the ncRNA feature extraction and pre-miRNA classification web tool, validating the secondary structure of the pre-miRNAs using Mfold and, at last, identifying mature miRNAs with the MaturePred tool. Applying this methodology to the DENV-2 genome (GenBank accession numbers: JF357906.1 and FJ390389.1), they were able to identify eight putative miRNAs, all derived from the negative […]


MatPred: Computational Identification of Mature MicroRNAs within Novel Pre MicroRNAs

Biomed Res Int
PMCID: 4670854
PMID: 26682221
DOI: 10.1155/2015/546763

[…] nformation specific to individual nucleotide. Microprocessor uses a support vector machine (SVM) [] classifier to identify Drosha cleavage sites based on 686 sequence- and structure-related features. MaturePred [] finds mature miRNAs by integrating the structure-based free energy, and other features extracted from miRNA:miRNA∗ duplexes, based on a SVM model for plants. Similarly, another approach, […]


Computational Identification of Dengue Virus MicroRNA Like Structures and their Cellular Targets

Bioinform Biol Insights
PMCID: 4149395
PMID: 25210446
DOI: 10.4137/BBI.S13649

[…] er a pseudo-pre-miRNA-like hairpin or a real pre-miRNA using a Support Vector Machine classifier (SVM).With the purpose of extracting mature miRNA:miRNA* duplexes from pre-miRNA hairpins, we used the MaturePred Web Tool (accessible at This software also uses a model based on SVM that predicts the starting position of an miRNA by performing discriminant analysi […]


Computational methods for ab initio detection of microRNAs

Front Genet
PMCID: 3467617
PMID: 23087705
DOI: 10.3389/fgene.2012.00209

[…] explored.Many programs have been developed for the detection of pre-miRNAs, however, only few of them are able to find the mature miRNA sequence within the hairpin (; ).Huang and colleagues developed MaturePred which uses two-stage sample selection to predict the mature miRNAs for plants and animals () based on a number of features which they compared between known miRNA:miRNA⋆ duplexes and pseudo […]
