NONCODEV5 – a comprehensive annotation database for long non-coding RNAs

lncRNA

NONCODE is a systematic database that is dedicated to presenting the most complete collection and annotation of non-coding RNAs (ncRNAs), especially long non-coding RNAs (lncRNAs). Since NONCODE 2016 was released two years ago, the amount of novel identified ncRNAs has been enlarged by the reduced cost of next-generation sequencing, which has produced an explosion of newly identified data. The third-generation ...

MNDR v2.0 – an updated resource of ncRNA-disease associations in mammals

lncRNA

Accumulating evidence suggests that diverse non-coding RNAs (ncRNAs) are involved in the progression of a wide variety of diseases. In recent years, abundant ncRNA-disease associations have been found and predicted according to experiments and prediction algorithms. Diverse ncRNA-disease associations are scattered over many resources and mammals, whereas a global view of diverse ncRNA-disease associations is not available for any mammals. ...

lncRNASNP2 – an updated database of functional SNPs and mutations in human and mouse lncRNAs

lncRNA

Long non-coding RNAs (lncRNAs) are emerging as important regulators in different biological processes through various ways. Because the related data, especially mutations in cancers, increased sharply, the developers at Huazhong University of Science and Technology updated their lncRNASNP to version 2. lncRNASNP2 provides comprehensive information of SNPs and mutations in lncRNAs, as well as their impacts on lncRNA structure and function. ...

Lnc2Meth – a manually curated database of regulatory relationships between long non-coding RNAs and DNA methylation associated with human disease

lncrna

Lnc2Meth, an interactive resource to identify regulatory relationships between human long non-coding RNAs (lncRNAs) and DNA methylation, is not only a manually curated collection and annotation of experimentally supported lncRNAs-DNA methylation associations but also a platform that effectively integrates tools for calculating and identifying the differentially methylated lncRNAs and protein-coding genes (PCGs) in diverse human diseases. The resource provides: (i) ...

EVLncRNAs – the current largest database for experimentally validated lncRNAs

Long non-coding RNAs (lncRNAs) play important functional roles in various biological processes. Early databases were utilized to deposit all lncRNA candidates produced by high-throughput experimental and/or computational techniques to facilitate classification, assessment and validation. As more lncRNAs are validated by low-throughput experiments, several databases were established for experimentally validated lncRNAs. However, these databases are small in scale (with a few ...

DES-ncRNA – A knowledgebase for exploring information about human micro and long noncoding RNAs based on literature-mining

lncRNA

Noncoding RNAs (ncRNAs), particularly microRNAs (miRNAs) and long ncRNAs (lncRNAs), are important players in diseases and emerge as novel drug targets. Thus, unraveling the relationships between ncRNAs and other biomedical entities in cells are critical for better understanding ncRNA roles that may eventually help develop their use in medicine. To support ncRNA research and facilitate retrieval of relevant information regarding ...

LncATLAS – a database for subcellular localisation of long noncoding RNAs

lncRNA

The subcellular localisation of long noncoding RNAs (lncRNAs) holds valuable clues to their molecular function. However, measuring localisation of newly-discovered lncRNAs involves time-consuming and costly experimental methods. Researchers from the Centre for Genomic Regulation and the University of Bern have created “LncATLAS”, a comprehensive resource of lncRNA localisation in human cells based on RNA-sequencing datasets. Altogether, 6768 GENCODE-annotated lncRNAs are ...

KTCNlncDB – a first platform to investigate lncRNAs expressed in human keratoconus and non-keratoconus corneas

lncRNA

Keratoconus (KTCN, OMIM 148300) is a degenerative eye disorder characterized by progressive stromal thinning that leads to a conical shape of the cornea, resulting in optical aberrations and even loss of visual function. The biochemical background of the disease is poorly understood, which motivated researchers from the Medical University of Warsaw to perform RNA-Seq experiment, aimed at better characterizing the ...

LincSNP 2.0 – an updated database for linking disease-associated SNPs to human long non-coding RNAs

lncrna

Researchers from Harbin Medical University describe LincSNP 2.0, an updated database that is used specifically to store and annotate disease-associated single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) in human long non-coding RNAs (lncRNAs) and their transcription factor binding sites (TFBSs). In LincSNP 2.0, the researchers have updated the database with more data and several new features, including: expanding disease-associated SNPs in human lncRNAs; ...

Logic programming to infer complex RNA expression patterns from RNA-seq data

lncRNA

To meet the increasing demand in the field, numerous long noncoding RNA (lncRNA) databases are available. Given many lncRNAs are specifically expressed in certain cell types and/or time-dependent manners, most lncRNA databases fall short of providing such profiles. Researchers at the University of Louisville have developed a strategy using logic programming to handle the complex organization of organs, their tissues ...
