Software & tools

MiRComb is an R package to analyse miRNA-mRNA interactions. This package combines biological information (expression data) with theoretical information (miRNA target prediction databases) in order to obtain a curated list of potential miRNA-mRNA interaction pairs.

MiRTranslate is a tool to translate miRNA names across different MiRBase versions.

MuSiCa (Mutational Signatures in Cancer) is a shiny-based web application to (1) visualize the somatic mutational profile of a series of samples and (2) to extract the contribution of the reported mutational signatures on their variation profile. It is mainly based on the MutationalPatterns R package (Blokzijl et al., BioRxiv 2017).

Excelheatmap is a web-based tool that generates heatmaps in Excel format from matrices of gene expression data.
