We introduce a biophysical model of miRNA-target interaction and infer its parameters from Argonaute 2 cross-linking and immunoprecipitation data. We show that a substantial fraction of human miRNA target sites are noncanonical and that predicted target-site affinity correlates well with the extent of target destabilization. Our model provides a rigorous biophysical approach to miRNA target identification beyond ad hoc miRNA seed-based methods.
