[…] hods. The comparative method relies on the conservation of miRNAs across the genome of organisms. Some examples of computational method using the comparative method are miRScan,, miRAlign, ERPIN, and microHarvester. For miRNAs that do not have conserve sequences, noncomparative methods are needed. Some examples of the noncomparative method are triplet-SVM, miPred, PromiR, and miR-abela. The ration […]

[…] ify potential miRNAs. Their pattern matching program, Patbank, was used for finding homologues and their MIRFOLD program was used to check for possible miRNA secondary structures.In this context, the microHarvester should be mentioned as it is a useful web service designed to detect miRNA homologues in any set of sequences, given an miRNA precursor []. The microHarvester is filter based and uses t […]
