Figure 5

Estimation of the pre-miRNA content for HHV8 and HCV. Plot of the probability P(m) of a given virus to encode exactly m pre-miRNAs (Equation 6) and probability Q(m) to encode at least m pre-miRNAs (Equation 7). Equation 4 allows to calculate the corresponding number of expected pre-miRNAs, 5.8 ± 1.8 for HHV8 and 0.5 ± 0.7 for HCV. These values correspond to the mean and standard deviation of the distribution P(m) shown on the figure.
