PLncDB: Plant Long noncoding RNA Database

PLncDB attempts to provide the following functions related to long noncoding RNAs (lncRNAs):

(1) Genomic information for a large number of lncRNAs collected from various resources;

(2) An online genome browser for plant lncRNAs based on a platform similar to that of the UCSC Genome Browser;

(3) Integration of transcriptome datasets derived from various samples including different tissues, developmental stages, mutants and stress treatments; and

(4) A list of epigenetic modification datasets and small RNA datasets. Currently, Our PLncDB provides a comprehensive genomic view of Arabidopsis lncRNAs for the plant research community.

PLncDBThis database will be regularly updated with new plant genome when available so as to greatly facilitate future investigations on plant lncRNAs.

Availability:PLncDB is freely accessible at and all results can be downloaded for free at the website.
