MicroRNA (miRNA) is a small, noncoding RNA that plays a critical role in important biological processes. Currently, there are many data sources about miRNA, which allow us to study its functions and to indirectly infer functional similarity of them. An miRNA can be annotated with information such as if it acts as a tumor suppressor, the organism to which it belongs, and its associations with genes, diseases, ...
