[…] of mirnas which are based on diverse methodologies. so far among the most successful were methods based on svm–. however, other approaches were also tested, e.g. random forest classifier was used in mipred and was also chosen as best performing method in huntmi. a novel markov random walk based method was implemented in mirank, while dekmer is a quantum mechanics inspired method. usually, new […]

[…] secondary structure alignment, and mirna's position on the stem-loop structure to identify rna homologs. it has higher sensitivity and comparable specificity than other homology-based methods []. mipred adopts the local contiguous structure sequence composition, mfe, and p value of randomization test to predict mirna precursor with a random forest algorithm []. we summarized popular methods […]

[…] study analyzed their dicer cleavage sites, hairpin structures and minimal free energies through mireapv0.2 software to identify whether these sequences were real goat mirnas []. in addition, we used mipred and mfold softwares to predict the secondary structures of mirna precursors and eliminate pseudo-pre-mirnas [–]., the abundances of differential expression mirnas were normalized to gain […]

[…] or a pseudo pre-mirna. on average, a sensitivity of 97.40% and a specificity of 95.85% were obtained. this approach was also compared with another four state-of-the-art classification methods: mipred [], mipred [], mirabela [], micropred [], and triplet-svm [] classifier. a new classifier was developed in [] to predict the regulation of mirna. in that study, they showed […]

[…] substantial biological functions. in order to identify whether mirnas could be located in the prrsv genome, the sequence of the highly pathogenic prrsv strain, gd-hd, was analyzed using rnafold and mipred software. several candidate sequences were localized to transcriptional regions (figure ) using these tools. prrsv-vsrna1 and prrsv-vsrna2 were localized to the orf1a region, prrsv-vsrna3 […]
