TargetScan Mouse Release 7.1 - Prediction of miRNA targets in mouseThe TargetScan team is excited to announce the official release of the next generation of their microRNA (miRNA) target prediction resource: TargetScan7.1 for the mouse species which can be accessed at . It is a follow-up resource to their paper on major improvements to miRNA target prediction algorithms, published in August 2015 (, and a follow-up to the previously released TargetScan7.0 for the Human. This latest release features

  • heavily revised 3′ UTR annotations,
  • updated evolutionary information encompassing an expanded repertoire of mammalian species,
  • improvements in the usage of features predictive of effective miRNA target sites,
  • improved miRNA conservation classifications for miRNA families,
  • enhanced user interface that simplifies data accessibility.

The authors are looking forward to hear any feedback regarding the website as they are “determined to further improve the resource for the miRNA community.

miRecords is resource for animal miRNA-target interactions developed at the University of Minnesota. miRecords consists of two components. The Validated Targets component is a large, high-quality database of experimentally validated miRNA targets resulting from meticulous literature curation. The Predicted Targets component of miRecords is an integration of predicted miRNA targets produced by 11 established miRNA target prediction programs

PicTar is an algorithm for the identification of microRNA targets. This searchable website provides details (3′ UTR alignments with predicted sites, links to various public databases etc) regarding microRNA target predictions in vertebrates, several Drosophila species, and C. elegans.

miRanda is an algorithm for finding genomic targets for microRNAs. This algorithm has been written in C and is available as an open-source method under the GPL. MiRanda was developed at the Computational Biology Center of Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center. This software will be further developed under the open source model, coordinated by Anton Enright and Chris Sander ([email protected]).

TargetScan: Prediction of microRNA targets – These are the most recent TargetScanS predictions (April 2005). They are essentially the 3’UTR targets reported in the Lewis et al., 2005 paper, with a few changes arising from updated gene boundary definitions from the April 2005 UCSC genome browser mapping of RefSeq mRNAs to the hg17 human genome assembly. To avoid difficulties in browser display, the few predictions spanning splice junctions are excluded.   [click to continue…]
