The main function of this database is searching. Following steps will tell you how to use this database quickly.
In this part, users could search any key words, like disease name "heart failure" or name of any noncoding RNA like "H19". After inputting key words, just click the "Submit" button, users can see the search results immediately.
In detailed search, users can get precise results by limiting in three fields: species, disease and types of ncRNA.
At first, users can choose interested species from the list.
Then, users could choose one disease they would like to study.
Finally, by choosing the exact noncoding type and clicking "submit" button, search results of detailed search will be returned.
If users click one column name, all search results will be ordered by it. In addition, we also add the search module on the top of search results table (marked by red circle), which will help users to find target information quickly. Details about each item can be found by clicking 'Details' button.
We rated all items into three grades: definite associations, possible associations and predicted associations. The Table below shows the criterion of rating.
|definite associations||methods include experimental validation like PCR, western blot, luciferase assay, etc||articles, miR2disease, HMDD, lncRNAdisesae(part)|
|possible associations||methods only include microarray analysis, high-throughput sequencing, and genome-wide association study(GWAS)||lncRNAdisesae(part), GEO|
|predicted associations||predicted unannotated novel ncRNAs||GEO|
