105,824 human long non-coding RNAs inside
LncRNAWiki is a wiki-based, publicly editable and open-content platform for community curation of human long non-coding RNAs (lncRNAs), viz., a community-curated lncRNA knowledgebase. Unlike conventional biological databases based on expert curation, lncRNAWiki harnesses collective intelligence to collect, edit and annotate information about lncRNAs, quantifies users' contributions in each annotated lncRNA and provides explicit authorship to encourage more participation from the whole scientific community.
Imagine a world in which every single person on the planet has free access to the sum of all human knowledge. — Jimmy Wales, Founder of Wikipedia

Among these 948 featured lncRNAs, 404 have been experimentally proved to be associated with cancer and other diseases (Disease).
Top diseases and top cancers, and the lncRNA numbers are listed.
LncRNAWiki keeps frequent updates by community annotation of human lncRNAs and integration of newly identified lncRNAs with experimental evidence.
In contrast to the previous version (released in 2014) that had 86 curated lncRNAs, the 2017 updated version has, a total of 948 lncRNAs that are community-curated (Featured LncRNAs).
