The UCSC Genome Browser database

RNA Type: Multiple classes
Overview: The University of California Santa Cruz Genome Browser (UCSC Genome Browser) is a database concentrated mainly on genomics and annotation information. Even being a general scope resource, it contains much data specific for non-coding RNA. UCSC contains a system to retrieve various types of information (dataset) on non-coding RNA (e.g. experimental, prediction) for several organisms. The community can download de information in several fromats. Also, fRNAdb 3.0 database has a UCSC browser (mirror) with a larger number of tracks and richer features of ncRNA. The ncRNA dataset is also available for non-Eukaryote genomes in the UCSC Microbial Genome Browser.
Search Methods:
  • Similarity: search sequences against genomes by using BLAT program.
  • Keyword: search by gene name/symbol, forward/reverse primer.
  • TAG: search by clade, genome, assembly, group, track, table.
  • Genomic Location: choosing for a clade, genome, assembly and chromosome location or gene name.
