Abstract

Non-coding RNAs (ncRNAs) are transcribed from genome but not translated into proteins. Many ncRNAs are key regulators of plants growth and development, metabolism and stress tolerance. In order to make the web-based ncRNA resources for plant science research be more easily accessible and understandable, we made a comprehensive review for 83 web-based resources of three types, including genome databases containing ncRNA data, microRNA (miRNA) databases and long non-coding RNA (lncRNA) databases. To facilitate effective usage of these resources, we also suggested some preferred resources of miRNAs and lncRNAs for performing meaningful analysis.

Keywords: Non-coding RNA (ncRNA), microRNA (miRNA), long non-coding RNA (lncRNA), web-based resources, plant
