miRBase 17 is coming

miRBase 17 is coming, perhaps as early as tomorrow. It’s another reasonably big update — a total of 16772 hairpin entries, including more than 400 new human and mouse sequences, new deep seq datasets mapped, and even some new Drosophila melanogaster sequences! More shortly ….

Posted in data update, releases.

    Drosophila melanogastEr… you make it sound like a dinosaur!
    And by the way, what so surprising that new dmel sequences will be released?

      Phone typo fixed! (As you know) dmel is probably the most studied organism wrt miRNAs, so I tend to think we’re missing fewer there than elsewhere! But still you found some more :)
