MiRFinder: an improved approach and software implementation for genome-wide fast microRNA precursor scans
BackgroundMicroRNAs (miRNAs) are recognized as one of the most important families of non-coding RNAs that serve as important sequence-specific post-transcriptional regulators of gene expression.Expand

Discovery of Porcine microRNAs and Profiling from Skeletal Muscle Tissues during Development
MiRNAs (microRNAs) play critical roles in many important biological processes such as growth and development in mammals. In this study, we identified hundreds of porcine miRNA candidates through inExpand

Structural and functional annotation of the porcine immunome
BackgroundThe domestic pig is known as an excellent model for human immunology and the two species share many pathogens. Susceptibility to infectious disease is one of the major constraints on swineExpand

Detection of differentially expressed genes between Erhualian and Large White placentas on day 75 and 90 of gestation
BackgroundPlacental efficiency is strongly associated with litter size, fetal weight and prenatal mortality. Together with its rapid growth during late gestation, the Large White pig breed shows aExpand

Genome-wide association studies and meta-analysis reveal novel quantitative trait loci and pleiotropic loci for swine head-related traits.
The pig is an important domestic animal that provides a larger amount of meat and serves as a biomedical animal model for human. Head and facial features are closely linked to identity recognition inExpand

Community annotation of immunity-related genes in the pig genome
Min3: Predict microRNA target gene using an improved binding-site representation method and support vector machine.
MicroRNAs are single-stranded noncoding RNAs known to down-regulate target genes at the protein or mRNA level. Computational prediction of targets is essential for elucidating the detailed functionsExpand
