Bioinformatics for Novel Long Intergenic Noncoding RNA (lincRNA) Identification


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 ...
