MicroRNAs (miRNAs) are small noncoding RNAs, which play significant roles as posttranscriptional regulators. The functions of animal miRNAs are generally based on complementarity for their 5' components. Although several computational miRNA target-gene prediction methods have been proposed, they still have limitations in revealing actual target genes. We implemented miTarget, a support vector machine (SVM) classifier for miRNA target gene prediction. It uses a radial basis function kernel as adoi:10.1186/1471-2105-7-411 pmid:16978421 pmcid:PMC1594580 fatcat:fbk34qt5frfrdkeygwltpxfqvy
