Advancements in RNA sequencing technologies and bioinformatic approaches led to the discovery of a plethora of non-coding RNA species. However, the functional annotation of these non-coding RNAs is often lacking. This annotation is required to further research these non-coding RNAs and identify non-coding RNA drug targets or biomarkers. As such, the field needs the development of public non-coding RNA resources and databases with high-quality annotation.
The purpose of this Special Issue is to present the community with a unique collection of non-coding RNA databases and resources to aid in unraveling the individual functions of non-coding RNAs. This collection can include curated databases, databases based on original research, integrative databases, large-scale RNA sequencing efforts, and other large-scale functional annotation efforts. In addition, the application or use-cases of existing databases and resources is welcome.

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All submissions that pass pre-check are peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Non-Coding RNA is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 1600 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
