Congratulations to Giorgio Bertolazzi, a former visitor to our group, for the acceptance of his paper by the BMC Bioinformatics. This paper is a collaboration Claudia Coronnello, a BenosLab alumna and Giorgio’s advisor. It is entitled “An improvement of ComiR algorithm for microRNA target prediction by exploiting coding region sequences of mRNAs” and presents an improvement to the algorithm ComiR that Claudia developed while with us. The improvement consists of considering coding regions and 5’UTRs as possible microRNA targets, in addition to 3’UTRs.
