If you can also provide procedures in details, that would be appreciated very much!! Thank you!
Hi, sorry for the late reply, I was on holidays.
Check this link:
You can downloand the PLEK and its manual from above link. The PLEK is straight forward, you just input the fasta file, then it will produce an output containing coding and non-coding genes.
As for finding lncRNAs close to your gene of interet. The steps are: 1. extract the upstream and downstream sequences (such as 500kb) of your target gene. 2. Blast RNAseq data to fragment extracted from step 1. 3. predict the blast result with PLEK.
