Cassava miRNA targets. miRanda predictions for each miRNA family identified in cassava, predictions were made using annotated cds from the Cassava4 version of the genome available at Cassava Genome Project 2010, http://www.phytozome.net/cassava webcite. Descriptions are based on the available annotations for the most similar Arabidopsis or rice gene.
