  1. Note: Abundance (raw read counts) of the listed miRNA inputs were identified as those that best clustered the four tissues (brain, heart, skeletal muscle and plasma) or the two developmental groups (adult versus pup). Supervised classification in Random Forests analyses of the four tissue types had zero error, clustering of samples by developmental stage had 0.125 ± 0.068 out of bag error
