SSC(Sequence, Structure and Conservation)profiler is running on a server at the Computational Biology Lab at the Institute of Molecular Biology and Biotechnology(IMBB), Heraklion, Greece. For more details see the reference denoted below.

SSCprofiler works using human genomic coordinates (version - hg17). By selecting the chromosome number and the start and end nucleotides, it is possible to scan specific genomic regions for miRNA genes. SSCprofiler also provides a link to the full genome tilling array RNA expression map published by Kapranov et al. Science 316, 2007

The Filtering parameters can be defined below. The default parameters are as defined in the human miRNA gene prediction analysis performed in the SSCprofiler paper.
