Hot topics: An atlas of human long non-coding RNAs with accurate 5′ ends

Using FANTOM5 cap analysis of gene expression (CAGE) data, the authors integrate multiple transcript collections to generate a comprehensive atlas of 27,919 human lncRNA genes with high-confidence 5′ ends and expression profiles across 1,829 samples from the major human primary cell types and tissues. The authors combine their findings to identify 19,175 potentially functional lncRNAs in the human genome.
