MicroRNAs (miRNAs) are endogenous non-protein-coding RNAs of approximately 22 nucleotides. Thousands of miRNA genes have been identified (computationally and/or experimentally) in a variety of organisms, which suggests that miRNA genes have been widely shared and distributed among species. Here, we used unique miRNA sequence patterns to scan the genome sequences of 56 bilaterian animal species for locating candidate miRNAs first. The regions centered surrounding these candidate miRNAs were then… CONTINUE READING
