    Abstract
    Biomarkers associated with spontaneous preterm birth before labor onset could aid in prediction, triage, and stratification for testing interventions. In this study we examined maternal blood EBF1 -correlated long non-coding RNAs in relation to sPTB. We retrieved all lncRNA transcripts from a public gene expression dataset derived from maternal blood in trimesters 2 and 3 from a Canadian cohort with a matched set of sPTB and term births. LncRNA transcripts differentially expressed in sPTB vs. term were tested for correlations with EBF1 mRNA levels in the same blood samples. Using...
