[…] considered as imbalance class distribution. several computational methods which have been developed for mature mirnas classification include maturebyes, mirmat, mirrim2, mirdup, maturepred, mirpara, mirexplorer, matpred and mirduplexsvm. these methods mainly focus on the use of machine learning techniques, and their lower predictive performance suffers from the class-imbalance problem. […]

[…] and mirna precursor sequence-based mirna identification algorithms have been successfully developed to automatically identify mirnas from srna transcriptomes, for example, mirdeep for animals and mirexplorer for animals and plants . however, the challenge is greater in non-model organisms because of the lack of available genome data., several strategies have been proposed to resolve […]

[…] first identified did not exist among the 218 bmnpv-encoded small rnas. however, nine novel potential viral mirnas were identified from among the 218 bmnpv-encoded small rnas (data not shown) using mirexplorer software [], and these should be further validated., many groups have reported finding novel small rnas derived from housekeeping non-coding rnas, such as rrnas, snornas and snrnas [,,].

[…] mirna transcriptomic analysis of ngs data to discover novel mirnas, including mirdeep , , , , mirdeep2 , mirdeep-p , miranalyzer , , , mirexpress , deepbase , mirtrap , mirtools , sscprofilter , , mirexplorer , and mirena . although these tools use different algorithms to predict novel mirnas, they share the same two basic principles: 1) mapping of the reads to the genome and 2) checking […]
