About this book


This detailed book provides a comprehensive state-of-the-art presentation of all aspects of miRNA target identification, from the prediction of miRNA binding sites on their target molecules to their experimental validation and downstream functional analysis. It also explores methodologies and tools for target prediction and related analysis, as well as tutorials on specific tasks, tools, and analysis pipelines. Written for the highly successful Methods in Molecular Biology series, chapters include introductions to their respective topics, lists of the necessary materials and reagents, step-by-step, readily reproducible laboratory protocols, and tips on troubleshooting and avoiding known pitfalls. 

Authoritative and practical, MicroRNA Target Identification: Methods and Protocols updates on basic and advanced concepts involving miRNA target identification and delivers an extremely useful guide to specific computational tasks and analysis in miRNA research.
