[…] enriched genes with mirna-mrna interaction predictions . recently, methods and web-services for the integrated analysis of mirna and mrna expression data have been developed such as magia , , mmia , miract , mirconnx and mirtrail . genmir++ implements a bayesian learning approach to identify differential mirna-mrna regulation , . hoctar calculates negative correlations between mirna and mrna […]

[…] mirna target databases [,]. we named the new method as mirage (mirna ranking by gene expression). similar algorithms have been developed and available in public, such as t-rex [], sylarray [], and miract []. mirage is focused on the direct targets of mirnas for the analysis and normalization procedures between arrays are included in the algorithm and therefore one can omit array […]

[…] than one mirnas, the relationship between mirnas and their target genes is quite complicated. facing this challenge, several computational programs, including mireduce [], mir [], sylamer [] and miract [] have been developed to evaluate mirna activity changes between different biological states according to gene-expression data. all these programs are based on a general consideration […]
