Providing tools for microRNA (miRNA) text mining.
miRetrieve summarizes miRNA literature by extracting, counting, and
analyzing miRNA names, thus aiming at gaining biological insights into a
large amount of text within a short period of time. To do so, miRetrieve
uses regular expressions to extract miRNAs and tokenization to
identify meaningful miRNA associations. In addition, miRetrieve uses
the latest miRTarBase version 8.0 (Hsi-Yuan Huang et al. (2020)
