The miRNA Targets [1] ontology contains genes downregulated after microRNA overexpression. The sets were collected by Ron Shamir's group from the literature.


Statistics can now be found in the footers of each table in the GREAT web output.


All ontology data was downloaded and built between Oct 14, 2011 and Feb 18, 2012.
