miRBooking simulates the stochiometric mode of action of miRNAs.

This page hosts the releases of the C implementation as well as some general information on running the program and interpreting its output.

To compile and install miRBooking, you’ll need Meson, Ninja and the development file of GLib suitable for your platform.

It’s also possible to write programs that consumes its C API as-is or via GObject Introspection using Python, JavaScript and Vala. Please be aware that the API and ABI are not yet stablized.

The miRBooking-scan Web service is now available and propose the exploration of the microtargetome a few cell lines.


  • mirbooking-1.2.4.tar.xz (sha256)

    Add support for GENCODE-style annotations, fix 3’UTR footprint and speedup vacancy calculation in the 5’ direction.

  • mirbooking-1.2.3.tar.xz (sha256)

    This release bring some build convenience, a standardized floats format (6 digits) and introduce a permissive MIT license.

  • mirbooking-1.2.2.tar.xz (sha256)

    More efficient computation of sequence index and fix issues with variable-length seed.

  • mirbooking-1.2.1.tar.xz (sha256)

    Fix mirna_quantity column in the TSV output.

  • mirbooking-1.2.0.tar.xz (sha256)

    This release backport some changes from the trunk and stabilize the C/Python API.

    • Provide and reorganize a more detailed output with common names and vacancy.
    • Add Pandas-based helper to the Python API to manipulate the output as a dataframe.
    • Drop the mirbooking-aggregate tool considering that we now have a Pandas-friendly API.
  • mirbooking-1.1.0.tar.xz (sha256)

    Few memory and CPU time optimizations and add --seed-index and --seed-offset options.

  • mirbooking-1.0.0.tar.xz (sha256)

    Initial release with a identical reimplementation of the Java version.
