Micro RNA analysis
miRNA (also written microRNA or µRNA) are non-coding RNA that are not translated into proteins. Instead they normally control the translation of mRNA. Profiling miRNA levels using microarrays is becoming a widely used technique.
With Qlucore Omics Explorer, a researcher can easily examine and analyze data from miRNA (microRNA) experiments. Data can be generated either by microarrays or for instance by RNA-seq and NGS techniques. For miRNA profiling, the following functionality will be of specific interest:
- Perform statistical analysis using ANOVA. Unwanted factors can be removed with a single mouse click.
- Generate a list of miRNA that classifies data based on a selection of statistical tests: F-test, t-tests or regression.
- Use hierarchical clustering or PCA to identify subgroups.
- Work with variable PCA plots to find correlation and networks among selected miRNA.
Importing data is simple.
