Genome-wide interrogation reveals hundreds of long intergenic noncoding RNAs that associate with cardiometabolic traits


Long intergenic noncoding RNAs (lincRNAs) play important roles in disease, but the vast majority of these transcripts remain uncharacterized. A team led by researchers from Duke University defined a set of 54,944 human lincRNAs by drawing on four publicly available lincRNA datasets, and annotated ~2.5 million single-nucleotide polymorphisms from each of 15 cardiometabolic genome-wide association study datasets into these lincRNAs. ...
