CpG-rich genes, non-developmental genes, and housekeeping genes appear to be strong miRNA targets in microarray experiments. We subdivided all RefSeq genes into sub-groups based on three different features: CpG frequency (CpG), and whether the genes were developmental (Dev) and housekeeping (HK) genes (see Methods). See Figure 1 for a description of the heat maps. miRNA, microRNA.
