The Summary: Long non-coding RNAs (lncRNAs) can act as molecular sponge or decoys for an RNA-binding protein (RBP) through their RBP-binding sites, thereby modulating the expression of all target genes of the corresponding RBP of interest. Here, we present a web tool named RBPSponge to explore lncRNAs based on their potential to act as a sponge for an RBP of interest. RBPSponge identifies the occurrences of RBP-binding sites and CLIP peaks on lncRNAs, and enables users to run statistical analyses to investigate the regulatory network between lncRNAs, RBPs and targets of RBPs.
