Many phenotypes and pathologies arise due to dysregulation of gene expression. Tracking mRNA levels and the means by which they are regulated helps to understand underlying mechanisms. For example, alterations in miRNA expression are associated with many human cancers. This has led many to believe that miRNA profiling can potentially be used to classify tumor subtypes making its potential as diagnostic, therapeutic, and prognostic biomarkers more promising.
