Most (~75%) of the catalogued lncRNAs are from mammals, for which more transcriptomic data is available and which have been more intensively studied, but lncRNAs from vertebrates to single-celled eukaryotes have been included. In addition, lncRNAdb has links to the UCSC Genome Browser for visualization and NRED (ncRNA Expression Database) for expression information from a variety of sources.
