OBJECTIVE MicroRNA is a type of small non-coding RNAs, which usually has a stem-loop structure. As an important stage of microRNA, the pre-microRNA is transported from nuclear to cytoplasm by exportin5 and finally cleaved into mature microRNA. Structure-sequence features and minimum of free energy of secondary structure have been used for predicting(More)
