[…] fix.com). MiRiFix integrates predictions from Diana microT 3.0 , Target Scan 5.1 , microRNA.org (2008 release; ) and PicTar , as well as RegRNA , Rna22 , FindTar3 (http://bio.sz.tsinghua.edu.cn/) and MiRTif, which is a support vector machine-based miRNA-target filtering-system to distinguish true predicted target sites from false ones . miRNA expression profiling data were accessed through MirZ a […]


One Decade of Development and Evolution of MicroRNA Target Prediction Algorithms

PMCID: 5054202
PMID: 23200135
DOI: 10.1016/j.gpb.2012.10.001

[…] The positive and negative datasets contain 195 and 21 interactions with experimental support, respectively. In addition, the negative dataset contains 17 interactions inferred from experimental data. MiRTif is available online (http://mirtif.bii.a-star.edu.sg/).•TargetMiner first selects a set of sites based on the seed complementarity. It then uses an SVM classifier (RBF kernel) based on mRNA an […]


In silico method for systematic analysis of feature importance in microRNA mRNA interactions

BMC Bioinformatics
PMCID: 3087347
PMID: 20015389
DOI: 10.1186/1471-2105-10-427

[…] ethod. Our results prove that stems greatly contribute to recognition of miRNA-target interactions. More systematic analysis of dinucleotide and trinucleotide sequences was carried out in this study. MiRTif uses various k-gram frequencies as features for a triplet SVM classifier to predict pre-miRNA [,]. It is thought that these features represent the real environment for miRNA-target interactions […]
