The following species are annotated with genomic coordinates (where possible). Click on a species to view the sequences annotated with genomic coordinates.
Whenever genomic mapping is available, RNAcentral sequences can be viewed in their genomic context using a light-weight genome browser Genoverse and their genomic neighborhood can be interactively explored without leaving the page (e.g. URS00000B15DA).
Viewing ncRNA sequences in their genomic context can often provide valuable information. For example, snoRNAs that are transcribed within the introns of protein coding genes become readily apparent when viewed in a genome browser (e.g. URS0000269B1D).
For a number of key species we establish a mapping between the RNAcentral entries and their genomic coordinates in reference genomes using the Ensembl Perl API.
Notably, the latest human genome assembly, GRCh38, is used for the mapping.
Currently the genomic coordinates are only available for RNAcentral entries that come from INSDC accessions used in reference genomes. In the future we plan to expand the mapping to sequences that are not part of reference genomes.
