RNAcentral: Exploring non-coding RNA sequences


RNAcentral is a database of non-coding RNA (ncRNA) sequences that aggregates data from multiple specialised resources and provides a single entry point for accessing ncRNA sequences of all types from all organisms. This course provides a brief overview of the data and the RNAcentral website.  You can also watch our webinar for an overview and demo of RNAcentral.

A basic familiarity with web browsing and an undergraduate level knowledge of basic molecular biology is recommended for this course.

This course was published in August 2016.
