  1. Triplet-SVM is a SVM-based method with triplet elements that represent information of pre-miRNA stem-loop structure. There is an extension called MiPred.
  2. microPred combined the new RNAfold-related, Mfold-related, and pair-related features with 29 'global and intrinsic' features introduced in the miPred approach.
  3. a 178 virus and 1232 plant sequences were used, as samples with multiple loops were filtered out by Triplet-SVM.
  4. b 196 virus and 1389 (the length less than 300) plant sequences were submitted to microPred web server.
