Exiqon Releases New Online Search Tool for Gene Expression Studies

New version of miRSearch for rapid retrieval of detailed information about microRNA.

Exiqon A/S has announced the launch of a new version of miRSearch, an established online search tool for rapid retrieval of detailed information about microRNA as well as related mRNA and lncRNA.

miRSearch 3.0 allows the users to save their search results in a report and download the information for later use in their research planning and review.

“This is a great advantage to researchers, who can now collate all the information related to their RNA of interest into a single report which can then be used to plan their next experiments” said Senior Vice President Sales & Marketing, Dr. Henrik M. Pfundheller, continuing: “Having all the data available in a single file also makes it possible to seek, find and verify the biological roles of the RNAs of interest”.

An updated interface makes miRSearch even simpler and easier to navigate, and allows detailed information about various RNA species and the biological links between them to be rapidly displayed.

For instance, searching for a microRNA brings up validated and predicted target genes, diseases where this microRNA has been found to be involved, tissues or samples where the microRNA is expressed as well as information about the miRBase history and possible co-transcribed microRNAs.

All the information is supported by direct links to scientific references, but is available to the user at a fraction of the time it would take to gather through traditional literature and database searches.

miRSearch 3.0 makes it possible to add all the information to a report which can be saved for future reference. The report even contains hyperlinks to relevant products for each of the RNA species described to aid planning of relevant experiments. Previously compiled reports are available through personal log in.

New data concerning RNA interactions are continuously being added as Exiqon applies advanced text mining to stay abreast with the latest literature.
