The identification of targets of virally encoded microRNAs is essential to understanding their role in the viral life cycle. A new study reports the successful use of a microarray-based approach to identify a key target of a microRNA encoded by Kaposi's sarcoma–associated herpesvirus, with implications for microRNA target identification in other contexts as… CONTINUE READING
