RNAcentral provides unified access to the ncRNA sequence data supplied by the Expert Databases Learn more
provides a comprehensive record of the world's nucleotide sequencing information
is a collection of non-coding RNA families represented by manually curated sequence alignments, consensus secondary structures, and predicted homologues
is a comprehensive, integrated, non-redundant, well-annotated set of reference sequences
is a repository for high-quality gene models produced by the manual annotation of vertebrate genomes. Human and mouse data from Vega are merged into GENCODE
contains tRNA gene predictions on complete or nearly complete genomes
is a database of published miRNA sequences and annotations that provides a centralised system for assigning names to miRNA genes
provides quality-controlled, aligned and annotated rRNA sequences and a suite of analysis tools
contains predicted tmRNA sequences from RefSeq prokaryotic genomes, plasmids and phages
is the European repository of information about the 3D structures of large biological molecules. PDBe is a member of the Worldwide Protein Data Bank
provides comprehensive information about snoRNAs, snoRNA gene loci, and target RNAs as well as information about snoRNA orthologues
provides aligned, annotated and phylogenetically ordered sequences related to structure and function of SRP
is a database providing comprehensive annotations of eukaryotic long non-coding RNAs (lncRNAs)
