miRNAmeConverter - Help
We developed this web interface to make the translateMiRNAName function,
contained in the miRNAmeConverter Bioconductor R package, accessible to
Loaded miRNAmeConverter version: 1.1.3
The aim of this miRNA name translator is to address the issue of miRNAs having
inconsistent names among the miRBase versions.
The translation becomes especailly useful when dealing with miRNA tools other
than miRBase. To retrieve targets from
miRTarBase, for example,
the miRNA name from version 20 is required, whereas the website
miRecords only accepts version 17.
To make use of the translation algorithm the user only has to follow the
step by step outline shown on the website.
The outline is as follows:
Enter input values
The input values can either be a list of mature miRNA names, such as
hsa-miR-29a-3p or plain text that has been copied from a
publication, for example. A filter will then be applied to the input values and passes
only miRNAs to the translation algorithm that most likely match a miRNA name
pattern. In the case there is no species attached to the miRNA name, please
select one of the supported species from the drop down menu.
Choose target version(s)
The user can choose single or multiple target versions that are provided by
the miRNAmeConverter package.
Run the translation algorithm by pressing the Translate button. This button
is active once there are input values provided in the input field. The results
can be previewd in the Translation Results tab. Additional information about
the translation of each input value that passed the prefilter can be viewed in
the tab titled Result Description.
The download button is activated once a translation had been performed.
The user can choose from different formats for downloading the results.
