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

A provider turns a local unique identifiers from a resource into a URI. Many providers are also resolvable as URLs (i.e., they can be used in a web browser).

The local unique identifier MIRT000002 is used to demonstrate the providers available for mirTarBase. A guide for curating additional providers can be found here.
