Abstract: Content-based retrieval of biological experiments in large public repositories is a recent challenge in computational biology and bioinformatics. The task is, in general, to search in a database using a query-by-example without any experimental meta-data annotation. Here, we consider a more specific problem that seeks a solution for retrieving relevant microRNA experiments from microarray repositories. A computational framework is finally proposed with this object.
