A. Pipeline of the small RNA processing for miRNAs. The “small RNA reads” and “gene annotation” trapezoids represent the input to the miRNA pipeline. The “preprocess”, “map”, “hairpin identification” and “miRNA identification” blue boxes are the stages in the pipeline which filter out the true miRNA reads from the noise. Finally the miRNA genes and targets are identified from the hairpins, miRNA and gene annotations. Each of these steps is explained in detail in the methods section. B. Northern validation of (left) miRNA gene (miRNA20A) and (right) crasiRNA (SINE28).
