The HUGO Gene Nomenclature Committee (HGNC) is the organisation responsible for naming human genes. In their current newsletter (http://www.genenames.org/hgncnews/hgnc-newsletter-summer-2013) they are asking the research community how they would like them to name bidirectional antisense lncRNA genes.
It would be best if they could get feedback from as many interested lncRNA researchers as possible, so please check out the newsletter and provide some feedback if you can. You can also send your by email to the HGNC firstname.lastname@example.org
