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..
