About MapMi

MapMi is a tool designed to locate miRNA precursor sequences in existing genomic sequences (e.g Ensembl and Ensembl Metazoa), using potential mature miRNA sequences as input.
After searching the genome for the provided mature sequences, these hits are extended and classified taking into account major structural properties of known miRNA precursors.

MapMi uses Bowtie and RNAfold third-party tools. Please check their websites for more details.
For more informations about the methods behind MapMi, please check the references section.
