The miRBase Sequence Database provides a searchable online repository for published microRNA sequences and associated annotation, functionality previously provided by the microRNA Registry.

miRBase also contains predicted miRNA target genes in miRBase Targets, and provides a gene naming and nomenclature function in the miRBase Registry.

Release 12.0 of the database contains 8619 entries representing hairpin precursor miRNAs, expressing 8273 mature miRNA products, in primates, rodents, birds, fish, worms, flies, plants and viruses.
