[…] 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 tools are developed with the use of enlarged feature sets and new, larger or improved data sets. several studies emphasized […]

[…] biological research and significantly reduce the cost. here we present currently available tools for mirna identification with the deep sequencing technologies, including mirdeep [], cid-mirna [], mirank [], mircat (identify plant mirnas) [], mirtool [], and miranalyzer []., mirna discovery with deep technologies is generally divided into two steps. the first step is called filtering. […]

[…] because structures of known mirna are used to train the learning processes to discriminate between true predictions and false positives [, ]. many algorithms, for example, mirscan [], mirseeker [], mirank [], mirdeep [], mirdeep2 [] and miranalyzer [], have been proposed. once predicted, experimental techniques such molecular cloning, sequencing or hybridization are typically used to validate […]

[…] highly conserved motifs in 3′-utrs . (4) machine learning approaches include support vector machine (svm), hidden markov model (hmm) and naïve bayes classifier (nbc), such as triplet-svm , mipred , mirank , cid-mirna , hhmmir , cshmm and maturebayes . however, the first three approaches are poor to identify new mirnas across species lack of homologies. although the machine leaning approaches […]
