I installed the mirDeep2. The version is miRDeep2.0.0.8 and last modification time is 21/04/2016.

I checked the result,miRNAs_expressed_all_samples_23_11_2016_t_17_27_18.csv, and found that each mirRNA has zero count. partial output from the csv file:

# head -n 5 *.csv
#miRNA  read_count      precursor       total
rno-let-7a-5p   0.00    rno-let-7a-1    0.00
rno-let-7a-1-3p 0.00    rno-let-7a-1    0.00
rno-let-7a-5p   0.00    rno-let-7a-2    0.00
rno-let-7a-2-3p 0.00    rno-let-7a-2    0.00

I also used to process the data, and the quantification of each mirRNA is also zero. I checked the report.log, and there was no obvious error message. I changed the dataset and still kept the same output, namely, zero read_count. Did I miss something here? Any suggestions?
