MIRcheck is a perl script designed to identify RNA sequences with secondary structures similar to plant miRNAs. It compares a potential miRNA and precursor against a set of secondary structure constraints derived from known plant miRNA precursors. The potential miRNA and precursor “pass” MIRcheck if all requirements are met, and “fail” MIRcheck if one or more is not.
