The Dietary microRNA Database is a searchable database of published and novel microRNA sequences discovered in human food. Each entry in the database, indexed as DMDM0000*, represents the mature sequence of a food-born microRNA and may be retrieved along with its information about the genomic location and hairpin sequence of the parental pre-microRNA, indexed as DMDP000*. The annotation covers the hairpin structure of the pre-microRNAs, cross-species sequence comparison on each mature microRNA, reported disease relevance, and the experimentally validated gene targets, of which a gene regulation network was built for each entry. Novel microRNA sequences are also subjected to computational target prediction and gene network inference.
Users are able to upload their novel findings of any food microRNAs to the database prior to publication of results. Visit the help page for more information about the data sharing.
DMD is managed by the Systems Biology and Biomedical Informatics Lab at the Department of Computer Science and Engineering, University of Nebraska at Lincoln with funding through NIH supported by Nebraska Center for the Prevention of Obesity Diseases through Dietary Molecules.
