What is NONCODE ?

NONCODE is a database of all kinds of noncoding RNAs (except tRNAs and rRNAs). It is distinguished from other ncRNA databases by:

  1. The data amount of NONCODE is big, and almost all traditional ncRNA classes are included.
  2. All the sequences are confirmed by consulting the references manually, more than 80% data are from experiments.
  3. We introduced a new classification system--process function classification system, which based on the cellular process it takes part in.
  4. NONCODE also provides an efficient search option, allowing recovery of sequence, related publications and other information.

In NONCODE v3.0, now it contains 411,554 public sequences from 1,239 organisms covering all kingdoms of life.Among them, 73,372 are lncRNAs, which almost cover all published human and mouse lncRNAs. Including 134 traditional classes distributed in 26 cellular process.What's more,three independent sources of multi-tissue expression profiles of 27,408 lncRNAs have been included to facilitate functional study, and potential functions of 1,635 lncRNAs have been annotated with the potential functions predicted based on Coding-Noncoding co-expression network.For each entry in NONCODE you can: Get text information such as class,name,location,related publication,mechanism through which it exerts its function, Follow links to other databases.
