The prediction of novel miRNA genes generally requires the availability of genome sequences in order to assess important properties such as the characteristic hairpin-shaped secondary structure. However, although the sequencing costs have decreased over the last years, still many important species lack an assembled genome of certain quality. We implemented an algorithm which for the first time exploits characteristic biogenesis features like the 5' homogeneity that can be assessed withoutdoi:10.1101/193094 fatcat:xj3iacpoabdq5c25eo42ldwavy
