TargetScan predicted microRNA targets

TargetScan is a database of predicted microRNA targets, developed at the Whitehead Institute for Biomedical Research. To facilitate the use of this database in BioConductor we created annotation R packages from it.

Download and Installation

You will need to install the core BioConductor packages first. See the BioConductor web site for details on this. Then, choose a package for your organism and your operating system:

  • Human, Microsoft Windows (all versions)
    Download this file, save it in a temporary directory, and then start R. From the Packages menu choose 'Install packages from local zip files' and select the saved file.
  • Human, Mac OSX (all versions)
    Currently not available.
  • Human, Linux and Unix systems, R source package
    Download this file, save it in a temporary directory, and start R. Install the downloaded package using the install.packages() function: give the full path of the saved file and use the 'repos=NULL' argument of install.packages().
  • Mouse, Microsoft Windows (all versions)
    Download this file, save it in a temporary directory, and then start R. From the Packages menu choose 'Install packages from local zip files' and select the saved file.
  • Mouse, Mac OSX (all versions)
    Currently not available.
  • Mouse, Linux and Unix systems, R source package
    Download this file, save it in a temporary directory, and start R. Install the downloaded package using the install.packages() function: give the full path of the saved file and use the 'repos=NULL' argument of install.packages().
