Increased MicroRNA Activity in Human Cancers A Presentation By Helen Meng Figure 1. Distribution of the MiR activity scores for tumor samples (red) and normal samples (blue). Results Methods Introduction infer miRNA activity from gene expression data Discussion Figure 2. Hierarchical clustering of breast cancer sampes by MiR-seed activity scores.
