Lantern: A genome-scale lncRNA ontology annotation extractor and cellular network repository

Lantern is a repository of high quality controlled lncRNA ontology annotations, extracted by mining recent lncRNA literature using a robust NLP based approach. It also houses extensive lncRNA omics annotations like: tissue specific lncRNA expression, RBP interactions, lncRNA-protein co-expression, coding potential, sub-cellular localization and SNPs in lncRNA. Thereby making it a holistic resource for improving the understanding of the noncoding transcriptome. The extracted annotations for around 11,000 lncRNAs are available at
