PNGC is pleased to announce the release of the DASHR v2.0 database of human small non-coding RNAs (sncRNAs). DASHR v2.0 is freely available at https://lisanwanglab.org/DASHRv2. This is an extremely useful resource and reference for the community studying non-coding RNAs and their diverse roles in often tissue-specific cellular processes related to human diseases.
Recently, Penn Medicine News wrote a press release describing the new NIAGADS Data Sharing Service (DSS), which will distribute genomic data to qualified investigators. Initially, whole-genome sequence data will be available for 5,000 subjects, with more data to be released within a year.
PNGC is pleased to announce the release of the SPAR web server for small RNA-seq data analysis.
Small non-coding RNAs (<200 nts, sncRNAs) play important regulatory roles by binding to mRNA and associating with transcription factor complexes in most eukaryotes, but only a fraction of sncRNAs, which include many different classes, have been identified and characterized.
