About us

miRQuest is a webserver that enables to the end-user a friendly and standardized software to use the many ab initio tools for miRNA investigation. miRQuest can easily be used by biologists and researchers with a limited abilities of bioinformatics. We built it in a middleware architecture in a web platform for miRNA research that contains two main functions:

(i) Integration of different miRNA prediction tools for miRNA identification on a friendly environment.
(ii) The comparison among the currently available prediction tools.

In both cases the user gives the FASTA sequences as input set to do the analysis and comparisons.

The miRQuest project start as a international colaboration between the Universidade Tecnica Federal do Paraná, PR, Brasil, the Universidad Mayor, Santiago, Chile and Beagle Bioinformatics
