Reads aligning with of gga-mir-181a. Sequence of gga-mir-181a hairpin is described in the top line. The brackets below denote the secondary structure. Reads aligning with the mature gga-mir-181a sequence as found in miRBase is denoted by a '*' sequence. The +/- 4 nt matches representing reads that perfectly matched the gga-mir-181a precursor with insertions or deletion of 1-4 nucleotides from the 5' and 3' ends are shown below the mature miRNA exact matches. The number of reads corresponding to each sequence is shown at the right hand end of the dotted line.
