Hello I have trnascripts.gtf as a cufflinks output. I also downloaded the miRNA annotation in gff3 for mus musculus(

Is it possible to get the intersection of these two files, meaning extract miRNA information from the assembled transcript?

Thanks for all your input in advance

Assuming your data is from regular RNAseq, you can obtain some level of information. You can obtain some expression level for the pre-miRNA forms or poly-cistronic miRNAs, specially if the miRNA is intronic, but this level will be at the level of the associated gene. In my opinion, I will not trust such quantifications, for miRNA is better to quantify only small RNAs to see the expression of the active form.
