The miRBase database is an archive of microRNA sequences.[1][2][3][4][5] As of September 2010 miRBase (release 16) contains over 15 ,000 microRNA loci and over 17, 000 distinct mature sequences, from 142 species.[1] The miRBase registry provides a centralised system for assigning new names to microRNA genes.[6]

miRBase grew from the microRNA registry resource set up by Sam Griffiths-Jones in 2003.[7]
