[…] 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 and mimirna ., chi-square tests were performed to compare the allelic distribution of snps between frda patients and controls. student-t test was used to validate the statistical significance […]

[…] in this analysis., the mrna targets of human and mouse mirnas were predicted by the elmmo algorithm (). we retrieved the elmmo mirna target prediction flat files v5 (january 2011) at http://www.mirz.unibas.ch/mirnatargetpredictionbulk.php., the mapping of refseq ids to ensembl ids (release 60) was downloaded using biomart. we only considered target genes where the mirna binding site […]
