Natural Antisense Transcripts (NATs), a kind of regulatory RNAs, occur prevalently in plant genomes and play significant roles in physiological and/or pathological processes. PlantNATsDB (Plant Natural Antisense Transcripts DataBase) is a platform for annotating and discovering NATs by integrating various data sources. PlantNATsDB also provides an integrative, interactive and information-rich web graphical interface to display multidimensional data, and facilitate plant research community and the discovery of functional NATs.
