In bioinformatics, lncRNAdb is a biological database of Long non-coding RNAs[1][2] The database focusses on those RNAs which have been experimentally characterised with a biological function.The database currently holds over 290 lncRNAs from around 60 species. Example lncRNAs in the database are HOTAIR and Xist.[1][2]
