miRNA Targets Prediction

miRTar, which adopts seven scenarios identify putative miRNA target sites of the gene transcripts and elucidates the biological functions of miRNAs toward their targets in metabolic pathways. The prediction system considers seven scenarios (one miRNA to one gene, one miRNA to N genes, N miRNAs to one gene, N miRNAs to M genes, all miRNAs to N genes and N miRNAs to metabolic pathways) to help biologists to identify easily the regulatory relationships between interesting miRNAs and their targets, not only in 3'UTR but also in 5'UTR and coding regions.
