lincRNA TUCP (lincRNAsTranscripts) Track Description


This track displays the Human Body Map lincRNAs (large intergenic non coding RNAs) and TUCPs (transcripts of uncertain coding potential), as well as their expression levels across 22 human tissues and cell lines. The Human Body Map catalog was generated by integrating previously existing annotation sources with transcripts that were de-novo assembled from RNA-Seq data. These transcripts were collected from ~4 billion RNA-Seq reads across 24 tissues and cell types.

Expression abundance was estimated by Cufflinks (Trapnell et al., 2010) based on RNA-Seq. Expression abundances were estimated on the gene locus level, rather than for each transcript separately and are given as raw FPKM. The prefixes tcons_ and tcons_l2_ are used to describe lincRNAs and TUCP transcripts, respectively. Specific details about the catalog generation and data sets used for this study can be found in Cabili et al (2011). Extended characterization of each transcript in the human body map catalog can be found at the Human lincRNA Catalog website.

Expression abundance scores range from 0 to 1000, and are displayed from light blue to dark blue respectively:



The body map RNA-Seq data was kindly provided by the Gene Expression Applications research group at Illumina.
