Erratum to: ‘MicroRNA target prediction using thermodynamic and sequence curves’

The Original Article was published on 25 November 2015

Unfortunately, the original version of this article [1] contained an error. Figures 6 and 7 were incorrect with the wrong captions. The figures have been corrected in the original article and is also included correctly below.

Scatter plot of frequencies of various types of seed alignment patterns in set of positive miRNA-mRNA interactions for Mouse (x-axis) and Human (y-axis). Among the top-10 most frequently occurring patterns, only two, namely, the 6-mer and 7-mer, are canonical seed match patterns. In the labels for the top-10 most frequently occurring patterns, 1 indicates a match, 2 indicates a mismatch, 3 a gap, and 4 indicates a GU wobble
