Abstract miRWalk (http://mirwalk.uni-hd.de/) is a publicly available comprehensive resource, hosting the predicted as well as the experimentally validated microRNA (miRNA)-target interaction pairs. This database allows obtaining the possible miRNA-binding site predictions within the complete sequence of all known genes of three genomes (human, mouse, and rat). Moreover, it also integrates many novel features such as a comparative platform of miRNA-binding sites resulting from ten different prediction datasets, a holistic view of genetic networks of miRNA-gene pathway, and miRNA-gene-Online Mendelian Inheritance in Man disorder interactions, and unique experimentally validated information (e.g., cell lines, diseases, miRNA processing proteins). In this chapter, we describe a schematic workflow on how one can access the stored information from miRWalk and subsequently summarize its applications.
