  1. The numbers denote the total number of positive predictions and numbers in brackets following the organism name denotes the total number of microRNA hairpins in mirRbase and that following the positive predictions denote the percentage of total predicted. (*)KSHV expresses only 12 microRNA hairpins. The 13th sequence is one with a possible single nucleotide editing that was cloned. (**) For HSV, the sequences were derived from respective literature as the version of miRbase did not yet include the sequences.
