miRA: adaptable novel miRNA identification in plants using small RNA sequencing data

Evers, Maurits; Huttner, Michael; Dueck, Anne; Meister, Gunter; Engelmann, Julia C


BACKGROUND: MicroRNAs (miRNAs) are short regulatory RNAs derived from longer precursor RNAs. miRNA biogenesis has been studied in animals and plants, recently elucidating more complex aspects, such as non-conserved, species-specific, and heterogeneous miRNA precursor populations. Small RNA sequencing data can help in computationally identifying genomic loci of miRNA precursors. The challenge is to predict a valid miRNA precursor from inhomogeneous read coverage from a complex...[Show more]
