How to increase the speed of miRanda target prediction program?

I am running miRanda for miRNA target prediction and I noticed that its way too slow even when running on cluster with 60 cores. Any existing method or probable/possible suggestion/method/advice apart from this that could speed up the process? Did anybody try using GNU parallel, if yes I wanted to know how its being done.

I uses miRanda some time ago and it was ok in terms of speed (it was ~10 putative miRNA sequences against all cDNA sequences (~35.000 sequences)). In my memory it was like a couple of hours..

Could you explain your setup please ? and also the computational time ?

agree, I have used it to predict targets for about 500 miRNAs and it doesn´t take more than 1 hour..

what are the files required to run this tool... I have only expressed miRNA sequence file. what else do we need? where to download it?

Thanks in advance

Check doc : https://cbio.mskcc.org/miRNA2003/src/miRanda-latest/man/miranda.html

From doc : miRanda reads RNA sequences (such as microRNAs) from file1 and genomic DNA/RNA sequences from file2. Both of these files should be in FASTA format.

My species name is Anas platyrhynchos.

Could you please tell me how to download the entire 3' UTR sequence?

Thank you in advance
