microRNA target prediction miTarget


Predicts miRNA target gene. miTarget is a support vector machine (SVM) that uses a radial basis function kernel as a similarity measure for SVM features, categorized by structural, thermodynamic, and position-based features. It produces high performance with a biologically relevant data set obtained from the literature, compared with previous tools. Its predictions are meaningful by Gene Ontology (GO) analysis and its performance can be improved given more training examples.
