  1. The table shows the total number of predicted novel pre-miRNAs as well as those that were specific for each tissue. The value in brackets is the unique number of novel pre-miRNAs predicted for each tissue. The miRDeep2.pl module also gives the seed homologs if present for each predicted novel miRNA. The table shows the number of predicted total and tissue associated novel miRNAs having human seed homologs. On an average 30% of the predicted novel pre-miRNAs had human seed homologs
