From: High-throughput sequencing of RNAs isolated by cross-linking immunoprecipitation (HITS-CLIP) reveals Argonaute-associated microRNAs and targets in Schistosoma japonicum

Item Putative miRNAs Analysis results** Total targets Average number of targets per miRNA
Known miRNAs 513* 43 7414 ~15
Novel miRNAs 256 256 4440 ~17
  1. *putative miRNAs found in miRBase (http://www.mirbase.org/)
  2. **further bioinformatics analysis of those putative miRNAs with interspecific or intraspecific sequence conservation, precursor secondary structure with optimum folding free energy, higher abundance, etc
