Vitis vinifera RNA degradome Isolated polyadenylated RNA from total RNA extracts of Vitis vinifera leaves, were ligated to 5'-adapter that include san MmeI recognition site. The ligated products were purified again, reverse transcribed and cleaved with MmeI. The 5' fragments were purified from gel and to a 3'- dsDNA adapter and PCR amplified. After PCR amplification the sample was subjected to Solexa/Illumina high throughput pyrosequencing. Please see www.illumina.com for details of the sequencing technology.
