A number of web tools are available for the prediction and identification of target microRNAs (miRNAs). The choice, availability, validity and selection of an optimal yet appropriate tool are a challenge for the design of high throughput assays with promising miRNA targets. The current trends and challenges for target microRNAs (miRNAs) prediction, identification and selection is described in this review.
