Prediction of expression levels of microRNAs at the EEMB stage. (a) Predicted expression levels of the experimentally measured highly and lowly expressed microRNAs based on small RNA-seq results. Expression levels of microRNAs at the EEMB stage were predicted using an SVR regression model trained on data for protein-coding genes at the same stage. (b) Predicted versus experimentally measured expression levels of microRNAs at the EEMB stage. R is the Pearson correlation coefficient.
