Insight into phylogenetic relationships among species from categorization of conserved silkworm miRNAs. To know about phylogenetic relationships among diverse species on the basis of conservation of miRNAs, we used all known and novel silkworm miRNAs to BLASTN against the localized mature sequence data downloaded from the latest miRBase database. Only those miRNAs and miRNA*s with high sequence similarity to the mature sequences of silkworm are left in this file. The first miRNA in each group (highlighted in blue) is the silkworm miRNAs identified in this study or previously reported.
