    I tried SyMAP but got the following error 

    $ ./symap []

    Starting SyMAP v4.2 - Project Manager
    SyMAP Version v4.2
    Java Version 1.8.0_91, mem: 1820M
    Build 116
    Reading from file symap.config
    The built-in MySQL server cannot run because a MySQL server is already running on this computer.
    Please stop that server, or else specify a MySQL host name in the symap.config file.

    If i have a set of miRNA sequences, what are the tools that are available to predict the target genes? I tried miRanda and mirdb, are there any  tools or databases that do the same, as the rna is not already known i cant use targetscan etc. The tool must predict the target from the fasta sequence of miRNA.

    Thank you

    Using breakdancer the output consists of DEL, INV, INS, CTX and ITX. Using following commands:

    bam2cfg.pl -g -h dis.bam normal.bam > config_file.cfg
    breakdancer_max -d test config_file.cfg > dis_normal.ctx

    the 11th output column should displays the amount of reads supporting the called SV per bam-file. I have some unusual research in 11th column, can you please helpme to fix it.

    Looking for list of human SNPs associated with a disease? We need to evaluate a large number of human SNPs for their possible association with a disease. So far, the closest I've seen is SNPedia, but a database would be more helpful.
