Abstract

MicroRNAs are functionally important non-coding RNAs that silence host genes via destabilizing the mRNAs or preventing the translation. Given the far-reaching implication of microRNA regulation in human health, novel bioinformatics tools are desired to facilitate the mechanistic understanding of microRNA mediated gene regulation and its regulatory roles in human disease development. Most state-of-the-art computational methods focus on the functional inference through identifying microRNA targets and none has comprehensively investigated the functional similarity among microRNAs. Here we present a new method to quantitatively measure the functional relevance among microRNAs that is solely based on the Gene Ontology and integrated functional annotation data from public pathways and PFam gene databases. In this study, we further demonstrated the use of the derived microRNA pairwise similarities to investigate the cooperative microRNA modules and construct the genome scale microRNA mediated gene network in human. The complete results and the similarity assessment system can be freely accessed at (http://sbbi.unl.edu/microRNASim)
