A database for human long non-coding RNA (lncRNA) transcripts and genes. In addition to basic transcript information and structure, several statistics are calculated for each entry in the database, such as secondary structure information, protein coding potential and microRNA binding sites. The database is publicly available and allows users to query and download lncRNA sequences and structures based on different search criteria. The database may serve as a source of information on individual lncRNAs or as a starting point for large-scale studies.
