In addition to surveying an array of best-of-breed miRNA functional study databases and tools, “Essential Resources for miRNA Function Studies” will provide side-by-side comparisons of methodology and usability of the most popular tools. Through question-led presentation and live demos, users will identify bioinformatics tools relevant to their miRNA research and learn how to use them.
Come to the workshop if you have questions about:
- How to get basic sequence/annotation information for miRNAs?
- How to find out the known/potential mRNA targets for miRNAs?
- How to find out the biological functions miRNAs may contribute to?
- How to find out potential miRNAs related to a specific research topic (diseases, functions, biological processes, pathways, etc.)?
- How to determine differentially expressed miRNAs from high-throughput experiments?
- How to integrate miRNA expression with mRNA expression data?
