Genome sequencing and analysis of the paclitaxel-producing endophytic fungus NRRL 62431
Background Paclitaxel (Taxol™) is an important anticancer drug with a unique mode of action. The biosynthesis of paclitaxel had been considered restricted to the Taxus species until it was discovered in Taxomyces andreanae, ...
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 ...
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 ...
