miRNA - Target Prediction HOME

This website provides access to our 2003 and 2005 miRNA-Target predictions for Drosophila miRNAs

Both methods make use of genome comparison across insect species. Our 2005 predictions are based on pairing rules from a systematic experimental study (Brennecke & Stark et al., 2005) and have a very high sensitivity and specificity as assessed by experimental tests (see Supplement in Stark & Brennecke et al., 2005). We thus highly recommend to use the new predictions.

For questions regarding the availability of predictions or the method itself please contact Stephen M. Cohen.

Please contact me with suggestions or problems concerning this website (Alexander Stark).
