  1. 1 Because Cons-SVM identifies 689 candidate seed matches, we test the performances of different algorithms when selecting the 689 highest ranking 7-mers.
  2. 2 This number is obtained by LOOCV (Leave One Out Cross Validation). The number of identified reference seed matches is 65 when classification.
  3. 3 The numbers in the parenthesis indicate how many miRNA families are identified according to the identified seed matches.
  4. 4 We only used the PCSs computed from Dme-Dps pairs and used the 689 highest-score 7-mers in the analysis.
