Provides the community the possibility of exploring interactively miRNA expression patterns and the candidate targets of miRNAs in an integrated environment. MirZ can help isolating miRNAs that may be involved in a given biological function. It provides clues into which molecular pathways may be controlled by these miRNAs to achieve their biological function. The server provides experimental and computational biologists with statistical analysis and data mining tools operating on up-to-date databases of sequencing-based miRNA expression profiles and of predicted miRNA target sites in species ranging from Caenorhabditis elegans to Homo sapiens.
