PsRobot is a web-based analysis toolbox for plant small RNAs and their targets. It was developed for the identification and functional analysis of user-uploaded small RNAs and their targets. The functions of psRobot include:

  1. genomic location of uploaded small RNAs;
  2. reltionship of small RNAs with repeat-seqeunces and the repeat types;
  3. expression data of small RNAs in key small RNA biogenesis related protein complexes;
  4. folding of small RNA precursor sequences with stem-loop shaped secondary structures;
  5. putative targets of uploaded small RNAs;
  6. conservation status of small RNAs and target sites in Arabidopsis thaliana, Oryza sativa, Sorghum bicolor, Zea mays, Carica papaya, Brachipodium distachyon, Populus trichocarpa and Vitis vinifera;
  7. cleavage information of target mRNAs in degradome data.

The web server currently has two modules: the stem-loop small RNA prediction module and the small RNA target prediction module.
