In order to better understand microRNAs of interest it is of utmost importance to learn about the genomic conservation of these genes. The miRviewer web-server encompasses all known (and some novel) microRNAs of currently fully annotated animal genomes in a visual ‘birds-eye’ view representation. miRviewer provides a graphical outlook of the current microRNA world together with sequence alignments and secondary structures of each microRNA. As a test case the expression of several microRNAs in various animals were experimentally validated. Therefore miRviewer completes the homologous microRNA space with hundreds of unreported microRNAs.
