Background: With advancements in omics technologies, the range of biological processes where long non-coding RNAs (lncRNAs) are involved, is expanding extensively, thereby generating the need to develop lncRNA annotation resources. Although, there are a plethora of resources for annotating genes, despite the extensive corpus of lncRNA literature, the available resources with lncRNA ontology annotations are rare.
Results: We present a lncRNA annotation extractor and repository (Lantern), developed using PubMed's abstract retrieval engine and NCBO's recommender annotation system. Read More
