Welcome to LncRNAWiki
106,053 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

Featured lncRNAs

In contrast to the previous version that had 86 curated lncRNAs, the updated version has a total of 948 lncRNAs that are community-curated (Featured lncRNAs).


Top 10 Diseases

Top diseases and the lncRNA numbers are listed.


We classified lncRNAs into seven groups based on their genomic location in respect to protein-coding genes (Ma etal. 2013, RNA Biology). Help

Small proteins

We identified 9,387 lncRNAs potentially encoding small proteins and 2,246 among them are with high confidence (lncRNAs and small proteins, Help).
