What is miRTrail?

miRTrail is a web-based application to analyse the interactions between miRNAs and predicated target genes via their transcripts (mRNAs). In that respect, different aspects are of interest:
  • Analysis of dependance of the deregulation
  • Significant overlap between predicted and actual mRNAs
  • ORA of different mRNA sets (predicted targets, deregulated predicted targets, actually deregulated transcripts)
  • Overlap between the respective, significant categories
  • Network analysis (visual and computational)
    • Individual miRNAs
    • miRNA families
The Overrepresentation Analyses are preformed using the versatile gene set enrichment analysis tool GeneTrail.
