Allows the characterization of miRNA-target interactions in different plant species and the prediction of new candidates mainly based in the conservation of the miRNA-target pair with a relaxed number of mismatches.
Allows the prediction of new candidates of genes coding for proteins of the same family.
Allows users to introduce a particular Arabidopsis thaliana locus tag or Phytozome gene ID and comTAR identifies the species where this particular gene can be a miRNA target.
Allows users to introduce their own sequence to search for potential miRNA targets. Sequence must be 18 nt long[?]
As miRNA sequences can vary in different species, specially positions 1, 20 and 21, we used sequences 2-19 (18 nt) for the search. (positions 2–19).
