Welcome to LncRNAWiki
52,616 human long non-coding RNAs inside
LncRNAWiki is a wiki-based database for management of human lncRNAs, aiming to harness collective intelligence to collect, edit, and annotate information about human lncRNAs. This database is a publicly editable and open-content platform for community curation of human lncRNAs, bearing the potential to become a comprehensive and up-to-date knowledge base for human lncRNAs.
Data sources
LncRNAs in present database are collected from GENCODE V15, NONCODE V4, LNCipedia V2.1, and LncRNAdb (downloaded on Feb. 21st, 2013).

Note: Purple indicates LncRNAdb.

There is no standard classification of lncRNA at present, and the classification of lncRNA based on genomic location is suggested to be of great biological significance (Ma etal. 2013, RNA Biology).
We classified lncRNAs into four groups (intergenic, intronic, sense and antisense) based on their genomic location in respect to protein-coding genes. As it is more complicated for the condition of sense and antisense, we also listed different kinds of sense and antisense lncRNAs, which can be viewed through different categories.

About Us
Our group works in the field of Computational Biology and Bioinformatics (CBB), currently with a particular focus on building biological knowledge wikis in aid of community curation of massive biological knowledge.
