TPGLDA – Novel prediction of associations between lncRNAs and diseases via lncRNA-disease-gene tripartite graph

lncrna

Accumulating evidences have indicated that lncRNAs play an important role in various human complex diseases. However, known disease-related lncRNAs are still comparatively small in number, and experimental identification is time-consuming and labor-intensive. Therefore, developing a useful computational method for inferring potential associations between lncRNAs and diseases has become a hot topic, which can significantly help people to explore complex human ...

IntNetLncSim – an integrative network analysis method to infer human lncRNA functional similarity

Increasing evidence indicated that long non-coding RNAs (lncRNAs) were involved in various biological processes and complex diseases by communicating with mRNAs/miRNAs each other. Exploiting interactions between lncRNAs and mRNA/miRNAs to lncRNA functional similarity (LFS) is an effective method to explore function of lncRNAs and predict novel lncRNA-disease associations. Researchers from Harbin Medical University have proposed an integrative framework, IntNetLncSim, to ...

Bioinformatics for Novel Long Intergenic Noncoding RNA (lincRNA) Identification

lncRNA

Long intergenic noncoding RNAs (lincRNAs) , which are larger than 200 nucleotides and transcribed from the intergenic regions of protein coding genes, have been shown by accumulating findings to be widely expressed and extensively functional in many cellular processes. Nevertheless, given their cell/tissue-specificity, there is a need of identifying novel lincRNAs in a given system. To fulfill this purpose, researchers ...

lncRNA-screen – an interactive platform for computationally screening long non-coding RNAs in large genomics datasets

lncRNA

Long non-coding RNAs (lncRNAs) have emerged as a class of factors that are important for regulating development and cancer. Computational prediction of lncRNAs from ultra-deep RNA sequencing has been successful in identifying candidate lncRNAs. However, the complexity of handling and integrating different types of genomics data poses significant challenges to experimental laboratories that lack extensive genomics expertise. To address this ...

Annocript – a flexible pipeline for the annotation of transcriptomes also able to identify putative long noncoding RNAs

The eukaryotic transcriptome is composed of thousands of coding and long noncoding RNAs (lncRNAs). However, we lack a software platform to identify both RNA classes in a given transcriptome. Here researchers from the Anton Dohrn – Zoological Station introduce Annocript, a pipeline which combines the annotation of protein coding transcripts with the prediction of putative lncRNAs in whole transcriptomes. It ...
