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.

A featured lncRNA, ENST00000534336.1, that is overexpressed in many kinds of cancers and closely associated with tumor growth and metastasis, is community-curated.

Data sources
LncRNAs in present database are collected from GENCODE V19, NONCODE V4, and LNCipedia V2.1.



The classification of lncRNA based on genomic location is now the most feasible classification method and is suggested to be of great biological significance (Ma etal. 2013, RNA Biology).
We classified lncRNAs into seven groups (Intergenic, Intronic (S),Intronic (AS),Overlapping (S),Overlapping (AS), Sense and Antisense) based on their genomic location in respect to protein-coding genes. Help

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.
