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
