Chinese hamster

In view of the draft state of the Chinese Hamster reference genome and the incomplete annotation of noncoding RNAs, an extended reference gene model was built to use in our differential expression and methylation analysis. The resulting annotation was contained 26,270 protein coding and 78,873 noncoding transcribed regions encoding for 80,973 transcripts, including 51,193 long noncoding RNAs (lncRNAs) or processed transcripts.
