LncRNAs : Long non-coding RNAs (lncRNAs) are mRNA-like transcripts longer than 200 nucleotides that are not translated into protein. LncRNAs are mainly transcribed by RNA polymerase II (Pol II) and are polyadenylated, spliced, and mostly localized in the nucleus. LncRNAs reserves meaningful biological information that has to be explored in order to understand the various regulatory mechanisms during stress conditions. Annotating the rice genomic lncRNA sequences based on the presence of motifs and repeats have been carried out.
