Database Description

DASHR, the database of all major classes of human small non-coding RNAs (sncRNAs), contains the most comprehensive information (sequence, annotation, sequencing-based expression levels, RNA secondary structure, and evidence of specific RNA processing) to date on both full sncRNA transcripts and mature sncRNA products derived from these larger RNAs in various human tissues. The database is publicly available at http://lisanwanglab.org/DASHR and the corresponding DASHR UCSC Genome Browser hub http://lisanwanglab.org/DASHR/tracks/hub.txt.
