Improving biocuration of microRNAs in diseases: a case study in idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis

Abstract

MicroRNAs (miRNAs) are small and non-coding RNA molecules that inhibit gene expression posttranscriptionally. They play important roles in several biological processes, and in recent years there has been an interest in studying how they are related to the pathogenesis of diseases. Although there are already some databases that contain information for miRNAs… (More)
