PMID: 28611800
DOI: 10.3389/fpls.2017.00873

[…] (de) analysis by normalization to total reads for each sample (robinson et al., ). mirnas with false discovery ration (fdr) < 0.05 were defined as de-mirnas., novel mirna were first predicted by mirplant v5 with cut off score over 0. their secondary structures were predicted by psrobot with the criteria of having large stem loop; mismatches in small rna region between 0 and 7, and maximal […]

[…] duplex. only mirnas that meet at least two criteria and showed consistent hairpin shaped secondary structures predicted by psrobot (wu et al., ), mfold (http://mfold.rna.albany.edu/?q= mfold), and mirplant v5 were selected as final candidates., mirna targets were also predicted by psrobot (wu et al., ). our criteria included: (1) penalty score threshold = 2 (the penalty score of each candidate […]

[…] conversion. after quality filtration, other contaminating rnas such as rrna, trna, sn and snornas are removed by alignment with bowtie []. the filtered small rna sequences were analysed through mirplant []. since the a. esculentus genome sequence is not available, we used g. raimondii, arabidopsis and o. sativa as reference genomes to find out the conserved as well as novel mirnas […]

[…] novel mirnas were mapped against mirbase and sequences that matched known plant mirnas with up to three mismatches were excluded. the novelty of potato specific mirnas was verified with the mirplant version 5 (an et al., ) using default parameters and additionally rechecked against the latest releases of rfam (nawrocki et al., ; http://rfam.xfam.org/), trna (chan and lowe, ; […]

[…] to increase the accuracy of mirna identification, we combined all read data and the publicly available genome assembly of n. tabacum k326 as a reference to mine the mirna candidates with mirplant software (version 4). after removing rrnas, trnas and snornas from among the candidates by using blastn tool, we identified 403 mirnas (fig. ) belonging to 200 mirna families (table ).

[…] compared mirvial with six existing mirna prediction methods. three of them focus on animal species – mirdeep2 (), mirtrap () and mirena () – and the other three are tailored to plans – mirdeep-p (), mirplant () and mira (). if the six tools have parameters similar to the ones in mirvial, we used the same values as in mirvial. running scripts and parameters can be found in (available […]
