miRSystem is a database which integrates seven well known miRNA target gene prediction programs: DIANA, miRanda, miRBridge, PicTar, PITA, rna22, and TargetScan.
This database contains validated data from TarBase and miRecords on interaction between miRNA and its target genes.
Several new features which distinguish miRSystem from others:
1) miRSystem allows querying multiple miRNAs in one step for the associations between the miRNAs and their target genes.
2) Two algorithms are incorporated to characterize the enriched biological functions/pathways among the genes targeting by queried miRNAs.
*Currently we only support Homo sapiens and Mus musculus miRNAs.
