MicroRNAs (miRNAs) are a category of small non-coding RNAs that profoundly impact various biological processes related to human disease. Inferring the potential miRNA-disease associations benefits the study of human diseases, such as disease prevention, disease diagnosis, and drug development. In this work, we propose a novel heterogeneous network embedding-based method called MDN-NMTF (Module-based Dynamic Neighborhood Non-negative Matrix Tri-Factorization) for predicting miRNA-disease associations. MDN-NMTF constructs a heterogeneous network of disease similarity network, miRNA similarity network and a known miRNA-disease association network. After that, it learns the latent vector representation for miRNAs and diseases in the heterogeneous network. Finally, the association probability is computed by the product of the latent miRNA and disease vectors. MDN-NMTF not only successfully integrates diverse biological information of miRNAs and diseases to predict miRNA-disease associations, but also considers the module properties of miRNAs and diseases in the course of learning vector representation, which can maximally preserve the heterogeneous network structural information and the network properties. At the same time, we also extend MDN-NMTF to a new version (called MDN-NMTF2) by using modular information to improve the miRNA-disease association prediction ability. Our methods and the other four existing methods are applied to predict miRNA-disease associations in four databases. The prediction results show that our methods can improve the miRNA-disease association prediction to a high level compared with the four existing methods.
