Non-coding (ncRNA) Databases and Tools


  • NONCODE, An integrated knowledge database dedicated to ncRNAs, especially lncRNAs (last updated 2017):
    NONCODE, Tsinghua University and Chinese Academy of Sciences, Beijing, China
  • NONCODE, Compiles data and annotations about non-coding RNAs for various species. NONCODE is an open repository curated from scientific literature and public databases which focuses mainly on long non-coding RNAs (lncRNAs). It intends to supply a detailed information for each entry encompassing sequence, structure, expression, function, conservation, or disease relevance. It also provides associated tools such as an ID converter and a blast tool:
    NONCODE, Multiple institutions, Beijing, China
  • Rfam, A collection of RNA sequence families of structural RNAs including non-coding RNA genes as well as cis-regulatory elements (last updated 2017):
    Rfam, EMBL-EBI, Hinxton, UK
  • RNAcentral, Integrated access to a comprehensive and up-to-date set of non-coding RNA sequences provided by a collaborating group of Expert Databases (last updated 2017):
    RNAcentral, EMBL-EBI, Hinxton, UK




NOTE - mirBase Release 21 (June 2014) uses old reference genome assemblies for D. melanogaster (Dmel_Release_5), D. simulans (Dsim_Release_1) and D. pseudoobscura (Dpse_Release_2). Linkouts from D. melanogaster miRNA genes to the Ensembl Genome browser (which displays Dmel_Release_6) will point to the old "Release_5" coordinates, which will be off the mark for many genes, especially those on X, 2R, 3R and 4 chromosomes.
