Description In the past few years, the quest for recurrent motifs in the complex world of gene regulation achieved several interesting results and the regulatory role of non-coding RNAs (http://it.wikipedia.org/wiki/MicroRNA) in intra- pathway regulation is under constant investigation. The goal of this thesis is the identification of regulatory motifs by complex data mining approaches on integrated data from several online repositories.
