Target Prediction

Analysis Scheme:
MicroTar is a microRNA target prediction program based on mRNA sequence complementarity (3'-UTR seed matches) and RNA duplex energy prediction, assessing the impact of microRNA binding on complete mRNA molecules. It uses the RNAlib library from the Vienna RNA package
