How can I get accession numbers of bread wheat miRNAs by their sequences? What are the tools or website that can be used?

  • $\begingroup$ Somewhat out of character, I have given a (short) answer to your (even shorter) question, but you really should read the help on asking questions. You are expected to do some research before posting and show in your question what attempts you have made to help yourself. I do not work on wheat (or any plants, for that matter) but I know how to use the Google search engine. Did you search for "microRNAs and Triticum aestivum"? There are quite a few papers that come up that presumably could provide leads. $\endgroup$ – David Jun 2 '18 at 12:00
  1. If you have a sequence, run a nucleotide BLAST search at NCBI, specifying Triticum aestivum (taxid:4565) as the organism.

  2. The miRBase page for Triticum aestivum has details of wheat microRNAs, and a page where you can do a sequence search with either BLAST or SSEARCH (as @WYSIWYG kindly pointed out).

  3. Perhaps the Triticum aestivum page at PlantGDB may help.

    $\begingroup$ Reg. point#2: miRBase has BLAST and SSEARCH (Smith-Waterman) for searching by sequence. $\endgroup$ – WYSIWYG Jun 2 '18 at 16:10
  • $\begingroup$ Thanks @WYSIWYG. I had thought that there must be, but presumably I didn't scroll down far enough. Have modified my answer. miRBase seems to be the place the poster should go. $\endgroup$ – David Jun 2 '18 at 16:43
