Rule based miRNA prediction Tool

MiRule (Rule based micro RNA prediction Tool) was developed to predict the presence and position of the mature miRNA in the input precursor sequence. MiRule assigns the weights for different rules; taken either from literature or derived from the datasets at mirbase.org. The results of MiRule are encouraging since the essential attributes selected are biologically significant. MiRule has been optimized for predicting mature miRNA in hexapods and also be used for six crop species.
