Abstract (in Japanese) (See Japanese page) 
(in English) A microRNA (miRNA), which is a non-cording RNA, regulates genes, and recently its role in cancer attracts attention. Therefore, the number of studies on expression levels of miRNAs in cancer cells is increasing. Results of integrative analyses of miRNAs and mRNAs are largely affected by the size of the data used for the analysis. For a small sized data set, the numbers of significantly altered miRNAs and mRNAs tend to be small, indicating that no meaningful results are obtained. This study proposed a method for such small sized data sets. This method compared target genes of a miRNA as a group with randomly selected genes (back ground genes). We performed simulations to investigate the effectiveness of the proposed method. The simulation results indicated that the statistics used in the proposed method reflected the differences in the simulated data. Then, we applied it to real cancer data. Some groups of genes having functions related to cancer were extracted as significantly altered. These results suggest the effectiveness of the proposed the method.
