This book reflects the current state of knowledge about the role of microRNAs in the formation and progression of solid tumours. The main focus lies on computational methods and their applications in combination with cutting edge experimental techniques that are used to approach all aspects of microRNA regulation in cancer. The use of high-throughput quantitative techniques makes an integrative experimental and computational approach necessary. This book will be a resource for researchers starting out with microRNA research, but is also intended for the experienced researcher who wants to incorporate concepts and tools from systems biology and bioinformatics into his work. Bioinformaticians and modellers are provided with a general perspective on microRNA biology, and the state-of-the-art in computational microRNA biology.
