MinoTar: Predict microRNA Targets in Coding Sequence

MinoTar is a collaboration between the Perrimon Lab and Bonnie Berger's group at MIT.

MinoTar predicts microRNA coding region targets by searching for highly conserved microRNA seed sites in coding regions. Conservation is judged conditionally on the observed amino acid evolution. For details please see the following manuscript:
