Validate the targets of a miRNA
Given the predicted target of a miRNA, the function returns a list of targets that are experimentally confirmed based on the provided ground truth. Users can provide their own ground truth or use the built-in ground truth which is the union of Tarbase, miRTarbase, miRecords, and miRWalk.
- a matrix with 3 columns. The first column is the miRNA name, the second contains the target mRNAs, and the third contains the correlation values/ causal effects/ scores
- the ground truth for the validation. The ground truth is a matrix with 2 columns, where the first column is the miRNA and the second is the mRNA.
- a matrix in the same format of the input matrix put only contains the confirmed interactions.
