AmiRNA Designer

A tool dedicated for the design of artificial microRNAs


AmiRNA Designer is a tool dedicated to design artificial micro RNAs (amiRNA and amiRNA* sequences) on the basis on the sequential data provided by the user.

Exemplary input files

AmiRNA Designer is equipped with the user friendly interface. The expected input is a target gene sequence, which can be loaded as a fasta file or a plain text in a copy-paste mode. Datasets necessary for thermodynamic profiles generation are loaded as parsed text files from selected databases.

Description of the AmiRNA Designer input files can be found here.

Off-target effect

The results obtained by AmiRNA Designer can be analysed for the off-target effect, using Perl scripts written for this purpose. The method to determine the direct interaction between the mRNA and amiRNA or the mRNA and amiRNA* is based on the Perl regular expressions. For each miRNA and miRNA*, the search for the binding site is performed along the entire transcripts with the shift of one nucleotide.
