Hi,

I'm new to miRNA field.
First i would like to know the correct way to pronounce miR-17-2?
It is microRNA-seventeen-two or microRNA-one seven-two?


Thanks

I'd say microRNA-seventeen-two. Or more likely em-ai-ar seventeen two. Usually I'd specify the species, following the convention in miRBase: dee-ar-ee em-ai-ar seventeen two for a zebrafish miRNA, for instance. If your lab only works with one species, I suppose that's not so important.
