Comprehensive Library
Host organisms

Currently supports six hosts with xeno-miRNAs reported from over 50 species.


Over 400 experimentally detected xeno-miRNAs supplemented with 1000 computational predicted transportable miRNAs miRNA targets are predicted based on two algorithms - miRanda and TarPmiR.

Analytical Features
Flexible search and result creation

Intuitive interface for query the database. Multiple filtering options to customize the result table.

Network visual exploration

Users can zoom, highlight, point-and-click, drag-and-drop, etc. Supporting enrichment analysis against KEGG, Reactome, GO, etc.
