UPDATE: miRBase version 18 is the current version

Ok, this one came as a surprise – never got an email from the miRBase mailing list.

Still looking through the data – but it’s clear that this update is another BIG one. Not just newly added species but major additions to well characterized species.

The first numbers are in:

  • 1212 mature human miRNA (up from 1090 in version 15)
  • 1040 mature mouse miRNA (up from 707 in version 15)
  • 679 mature rat miRNA (up from 387 in version 15)

More later during the day…
