miRNA-mediated competing endogenous RNAs (ceRNAs) networks

ceRNABase have constructed pan-cancer ceRNA networks from tumor miRNA and mRNA expression profiles (TCGA 14 cancer types with >6000 tumor and normal samples). For example: known PTEN-ZEB2 ceRNA interactions can be supported in 13 cancer types .
