We have developed a program SOAP for efficient gapped and ungapped alignment of short oligonucleotides onto reference sequences. The program is designed to handle the huge amounts of short reads generated by parallel sequencing using the new generation Illumina-Solexa sequencing technology. SOAP is compatible with numerous applications, including single-read or pair-end resequencing, small RNA discovery and mRNA tag sequence mapping. SOAP is a command-driven program, which supports multi-threaded parallel computing, and has a batch module for multiple query sets.
miRToolsGallery is a database of miRNA tools. It provides the following services: (a) Search，(b) Filter and (c) Rank the tools. Our database aim to make it easy for researchers to find the right tools or data source for their own specific study in miRNA field. And it’s also very convenient for writing a tools review paper. Now we have collect above 1000 tools. miRToolsGallery will update when every new 100 tools add in. The first public online was in 1st Oct, 2016, and latest update time is 22nd April, 2018 (v1.2).
- Filter and Rank : Give user max flexibility to filter and rank the tools and return a table view.
- Tutorials : Give two application examples and tell user how to use miRToolsGallery.
- Tags Gallery : Print Word Cloud for the tags.
- Logo Gallery : Randomly list logo of tools in the database, give each tool evenly opportunity to be find by user.
- Review Paper Gallery : List the collection of miRNA tools review papers.
- Submit Tools : We still need all user's kindly help to improve the miRToolsGallery.
- Contact us : User can get in touch with us through this page to send feedback.
The miRNA Registry provides a service for the assignment of miRNA gene names prior to publication. A comprehensive and searchable database of published miRNA sequences is accessible via a web interface (http://www.sanger.ac.uk/Software/Rfam/mirna/), and all sequence and annotation data are freely available for download. Release 2.0 of the database contains 506 miRNA entries from six organisms.
We predict regulatory targets of vertebrate microRNAs (miRNAs) by identifying mRNAs with conserved complementarity to the seed (nucleotides 2-7) of the miRNA. An overrepresentation of conserved adenosines flanking the seed complementary sites in mRNAs indicates that primary sequence determinants can supplement base pairing to specify miRNA target recognition.
