Question: Differential Expression of lncRNAs in Brain --- Can a database aid my search?

I am searching for lncRNA expression differences within specific brain tissues (astrocytes vs neurons vs etc...) for humans. I have browsed numerous lncRNA databases (linked from and explored the ensembl regulatory build. That being said, I can''t find any comprehensive source that highlights that information.

Perhaps the only solution is to use publicly available RNA-seq data and perform the differential expression myself. But as I've never done that... and suspect others had this same question... I thought it would be prudent to post here.

Thus, I am hoping someone could either point me in the right direction or highlight what I should/shouldn't be doing. Perhaps there is a reason this information isn't readily available.

Thank you

Nice to see another person looking for lncRNA in brain. I can share some resources I am aware of.

Read these papers

The resources are very limited and you would have to do your own analysis and even for that you might not find a lot of raw data for human.

Hope it helps!
