Effects of Aluminum Oxide Nanoparticles on the Growth, Development, and microRNA Expression of Tobacco ()
Nanoparticles are a class of newly emerging environmental pollutions. To date, few experiments have been conducted to investigate the effect nanoparticles may have on plant growth and development. It is important to study ...
Genome-Wide Functional Analysis of the Cotton Transcriptome by Creating an Integrated EST Database
A total of 28,432 unique contigs (25,371 in consensus contigs and 3,061 as singletons) were assembled from all 268,786 cotton ESTs currently available. Several in silico approaches [comparative genomics, Blast, Gene Ontology ...
MicroRNA Expression Analysis in the Cellulosic Biofuel Crop Switchgrass () under Abiotic Stress
Switchgrass has increasingly been recognized as a dedicated biofuel crop for its broad adaptation to marginal lands and high biomass. However, little is known about the basic biology and the regulatory mechanisms of gene ...
Boron Stress Responsive MicroRNAs and Their Targets in Barley
Boron stress is an environmental factor affecting plant development and production. Recently, microRNAs (miRNAs) have been found to be involved in several plant processes such as growth regulation and stress responses. In ...
