LncRNAWiki: harnessing community knowledge in collaborative curation of human long non-coding RNAs

Long non-coding RNAs (lncRNAs) perform a diversity of functions in numerous important biological processes and are implicated in many human diseases. In this report we present lncRNAWiki (, a wiki-based platform that is open-content and publicly editable and aimed at community-based curation and collection of information on human lncRNAs. Current related...

RiceWiki: a wiki-based database for community curation of rice genes

Rice is the most important staple food for a large part of the world’s human population and also a key model organism for biological studies of crops as well as other related plants. Here we present RiceWiki (, a wiki-based, publicly editable and open-content platform for community curation of rice genes. Most existing related biological databases are...

A novel DNA sequence periodicity decodes nucleosome positioning

There have been two types of well-characterized DNA sequence periodicities; both are found to be associated with important molecular mechanisms. One is a 3-nt periodicity corresponding to codon triplets, the other is a 10.5-nt periodicity related to the structure of DNA helixes. In the process of analyzing the genome and transcriptome of Trichomonas vaginalis, we observed a 120.9...
