The identification and characterization of important roles microRNAs (miRNAs) played in human cancer is an increasingly active area in medical informatics, and the prediction of miRNA target genes remains a challenging task to cancer researchers. We propose an innovative computing framework based on the Ontology for MicroRNA Target (OMIT) to facilitate knowledge acquisition from existing sources. The project aims to assist biologists in unraveling important roles of miRNAs in human cancer, and… CONTINUE READING
