Database Description

snoRNA-LBME-db is a collection of human small nucleolar RNAs (snoRNAs) and Cajal body-specific RNAs (scaRNAs), that serve to guide modifications in rRNAs or snRNAs. The database can be search by sno/scaRNA name or Accession number, or by the position of the modified nucleotide in rRNA/snRNA sequence. Each sno/scaRNA entry is directly linked to the corresponding position at the human UCSC Genome Browser. The database is available on the web at

Recent Developments

The site now presents a Table of functional correspondence between human and yeast snoRNAs. Sequence alignments showing the phylogenic conservation of snoRNAs among vertebrates are being progressively added to the database.
