miRTarBase is a database of miRNA-target interactions (MTIs), collected manually from relevant literature, following Natural Language Processing of the text to identify research articles related to functional studies of miRNAs. Generally, the collected MTIs are validated experimentally by reporter assay, western blot, microarray and next-generation sequencing experiments.

Pattern for Local Unique Identifiers

Local identifiers in mirTarBase should match this regular expression:

Example Local Unique Identifier
MIRT000002   Resolve
Pattern for CURIES

Compact URIs (CURIEs) constructed from mirTarBase should match this regular expression:

Example CURIE
2010 miRTarBase: a database curates experimentally validated microRNA-target interactions
Metaregistry mirTarBase

The metaregistry provides mappings between the Bioregistry and other registries. There are 5 mappings to external registries for this resource with 3 unique external prefixes.

FAIRSharing FAIRSharing logo fairsharing FAIRsharing.f0bxfg
Identifiers.org Identifiers.org logo miriam mirtarbase
N2T Name-to-Thing logo n2t mirtarbase
Wikidata Wikidata Property logo wikidata P2646

Providers are various services that resolve CURIEs to URLs. The example CURIE None:MIRT000002 is used to demonstrate the provides available for this resource. Generation of OLS and BioPortal URLs requires additional programmatic logic beyond string formatting.
