Abstract

MicroRNAs (miRNAs) are small, highly conserved noncoding RNA molecules involved in the regulation of gene expression. Since each miRNA regulates the expression of hundreds of target mRNAs, miRNAs could function as master coordinators, efficiently regulating fundamental cellular processes, including proliferation, apoptosis, and development. Furthermore, miRNAs may provide useful diagnostic and therapeutic targets in a variety of diseases. However, miRNA expression profiling is essential for the investigation of the biological functions and clinical applications of miRNAs. Therefore, in this chapter, we review and discuss commonly used techniques for miRNAs profiling, as well as their advantages and restrictions.

Attention Score in Context

This research output has an Altmetric Attention Score of 1. This is our high-level measure of the quality and quantity of online attention that it has received. This Attention Score, as well as the ranking and number of research outputs shown below, was calculated when the research output was last mentioned on 04 February 2016.
All research outputs
#7,165,159
of 9,735,666 outputs
Outputs from Methods in molecular biology
#3,329
of 7,443 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#186,802
of 301,109 outputs
Outputs of similar age from Methods in molecular biology
#496
of 1,212 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 9,735,666 research outputs across all sources so far. This one is in the 22nd percentile – i.e., 22% of other outputs scored the same or lower than it.
So far Altmetric has tracked 7,443 research outputs from this source. They receive a mean Attention Score of 2.0. This one is in the 49th percentile – i.e., 49% of its peers scored the same or lower than it.
Older research outputs will score higher simply because they've had more time to accumulate mentions. To account for age we can compare this Altmetric Attention Score to the 301,109 tracked outputs that were published within six weeks on either side of this one in any source. This one is in the 32nd percentile – i.e., 32% of its contemporaries scored the same or lower than it.
We're also able to compare this research output to 1,212 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one. This one has gotten more attention than average, scoring higher than 51% of its contemporaries.
