First, Welcome to miRNAMap. Here, a step-by-step introduction to miRNAMap website.
You can click to browse every subject, or choose search keywords.


Choose species which one you would like to browse miRNAs or miRNA targets.

Here divide into two major parts for user to browse : miRNA and miRNA targets. You can browse
whether miRNAs or miRNA targets.

    Criterion 1ˇGtarget sites predicted by at least two tools.

The three tools, including miRanda, RNAhybrid and TargetScan,
were applied separately to identify miRNA targets
against the conserved regions of 3' -UTR in all metazoan genomes.

    Criterion 2ˇG target gene contains multiple target sites.

miRNA hybridize one mRNA more than one site.

    Criterion 3ˇGtarget site locates in accessible regions.

miRNAs hybridize to the target sites, which is within more accessible regions,
are with more possibility to be real.

    The miRNA information
Part I - The pre-miRNA information


Part II - The mature miRNA information

we integrate two data sets of miRNA expression profiles,
which were obtained by different experimental methods
including quantitative polymerase chain reaction (Q-PCR) and miRNA-bead array.


The target gene information


Part I - Target gene information

Part II - Gene expression profiles

The expression of miRNA and its target gene are negatively correlated
since the miRNA down-regulates its target gene, the Pearson correlation coefficients is
computed from the miRNA expression profile and the target gene expression profile.
