exoRBase is a repository of circular RNA (circRNA), long non-coding RNA (lncRNA) and messenger RNA (mRNA) derived from RNA-seq data analyses of human blood exosomes. Experimental validations from published literature are also included.

exoRBase features the integration and visualization of RNA expression profiles based on normalized RNA-seq data spanning both normal individuals and patients with different diseases.

exoRBase aims to collect and characterize all long RNA species in human blood exosomes. The annotation, expression level and possible original tissues are provided. exoRBase will aid researchers in identifying molecular signatures in blood exosomes and will trigger new circulating biomarker discovery and functional implication for human diseases.
