Cancer LncRNA Census

The Cancer LncRNA Census is an continous effort to identify and catalogue lncRNA genes which have been causally implicated in cancer. The original census, including criteria and analysis was published in bioRxiv (

CLC can be used for two main analysis:

a) Analysis of the genomic and functional properties of cancer related lncRNAs, that distinguish them from the rest of lncRNAs.

b) Sensitivity and precision analysis of lncRNA cancer driver prediction methods like ExInAtor (, in order to check the percentage of candidates that have prior evidence of cancer relationship.
