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…
