These are manually curated databases that scan the published references for experimental evidences related with the regulatory effect of a particular miRNA over its cognate targets. Some of them allow to search for several criteria, including the experimental methods used for target validation.
GO to validated targets
These applications fall over diverse classes, however they are mainly designed to infer the effect of several miRNAs over the transcriptomic or proteomic outputs. Typically they compare the expression levels of miRNAs and relate them with the mRNA levels of their predicted or validated targets in a particular experiment.
GO to integrative analysis
The regulatory effect of miRNAs within biological processes is normally exerted by groups of these non-coding RNAs that act in a coordinate manner. In order to systematize the overall effect of the miRNA regulatory control, the clustering and grouping of the target genes has been recently explored. This section includes several server platforms to identify the cellular pathways potentially affected by a group of miRNAs.
