miRSystem: An Integrated System for Characterizing Enriched Functions and Pathways of MicroRNA Targets

Figure 1

An overview of miRSystem.

The green boxes indicate the data input and output. The purple rectangle with a dotted outline represents the miRSystem core. The three major components of miRSystem (blue boxes) are the miRNA ID converter, statistical analysis tools, and web application server. The target prediction algorithms (upper yellow cylinder) constitute 7 programs (white boxes) and 2 experimentally validated data sets (red boxes). The pathway prediction module (lower yellow cylinder) includes the information from 5 databases (orange boxes).
