Table 1: Sensitivity of NOVOMIR, TRIPLET-SVM [14], and HHMMIR [13] in pre-miRNA prediction for different versions of MIRBASE. The row “14–10” shows values for sequences from MIRBASE 14 which are not present in MIRBASE 10.

1 Sensitivity is calculated as 𝑇 𝑃 / ( 𝑇 𝑃 + 𝐹 𝑁 ) .
2 Note that NOVOMIR’s thresholds and probabilities were learned only from A. thaliana sequences in MIRBASE version 10.
3 The left column gives sensitivity for all sequences; the right column gives sensitivity for those sequences left after the preprocessing step(s) of HHMMIR and TRIPLET-SVM, respectively.
