QuagmiR: A cloud-based application for isomiR big data analytics

MicroRNAs (miRNAs) function as master regulators of gene expression. Recent studies demonstrate that miRNA isoforms (isomiRs) play a unique role during cancer development. National Cancer Institute researchers have developed QuagmiR, the first cloud-based tool to analyze isomiRs from next generation sequencing data. Using a novel and flexible searching algorithm designed for the detection and annotation of heterogeneous isomiRs, it permits extensive customization of the query process and reference databases to meet the user’s diverse research needs.
