Project description:The study was to obtain transcriptional data and examine gene expression of different ploidy based on RNA-Seq and bioinformatic analysis. Differentially expressed genes including both up- and down-regulated were received by pairwise contrasts of diploid, triploid and tetraploid. RNA from young plant leaves were isolated and gene expressions of different autoploidy via RNA-Seq and bioinformatic analysis were conducted
Project description:This experiment contains the subset of data corresponding to sorghum RNA-Seq data from experiment E-GEOD-50464 (http://www.ebi.ac.uk/arrayexpress/experiments/E-GEOD-50464/), which goal is to examine the transcriptome of various Sorghum bicolor (BTx623) tissues: flowers, vegetative and floral meristems, embryos, roots and shoots. Thus, we expanded the existing transcriptome atlas for sorghum by conducting RNA-Seq analysis on meristematic tissues, florets, and embryos, and these data sets have been used to improve on the existing community structural annotations.
Project description:This study utilized next generation sequencing technology (RNA-Seq and BS-Seq) to examine the transcriptome and methylome of various tissues within sorghum plants with the ultimate goal of improving the Sorghum bicolor annotation We examined the mRNA of various Sorghum bicolor (BTx623) tissues (flowers, vegitative and floral meristems, embryos, roots and shoots) and bisulfite treated DNA from two root samples
Project description:In a previous study, seed coat and cotyledon tissues of Williams, Richland and T157 soybean lines were investigated to show tissue specificity of CHS siRNA expression (Tuteja et al., 2009). Here, we investigated more tissues such as leaf, root and germinating cotyledon to ascertain the tissue specificity of CHS siRNAs in Williams. Data from multiple small RNA libraries were sequenced deeply by the Illumina high-throughput sequencing technology. The total numbers of small RNA reads were from three million to thirty million, providing sufficient data to show the tissue specificity of CHS siRNA. High-throughput sequencing using Genome Analyzer II and Illumina HiSeq 2000 was performed.
Project description:The regulation of eukaryotic chromatin relies on interactions between many epigenetic factors, including histone modifications, DNA methylation, and the incorporation of histone variants. H2A.Z, one of the most conserved but enigmatic histone variants that is enriched at the transcriptional start sites of genes, has been implicated in a variety of chromosomal processes. Recently, we reported a genome-wide anticorrelation between H2A.Z and DNA methylation, an epigenetic hallmark of heterochromatin that has also been found in the bodies of active genes in plants and animals. Here, we investigate the basis of this anticorrelation using a novel h2a.z loss-of-function line in Arabidopsis thaliana. Through genome-wide bisulfite sequencing, we demonstrate that a loss of H2A.Z in Arabidopsis does not affect the level or profile of DNA methylation in genes, and we propose that the global anticorrelation between DNA methylation and H2A.Z is caused by the exclusion of H2A.Z from methylated DNA. RNA-seq and genomic mapping of H2A.Z show that H2A.Z enrichment across gene bodies, rather than at the TSS, is correlated with lower transcription levels and higher measures of gene responsiveness. We find that a loss of H2A.Z causes misregulation of many genes that are disproportionately associated with response to both endogenous and exogenous stimuli. We propose that H2A.Z deposition in gene bodies promotes variability in levels and patterns of gene expression, and that a major function of genic DNA methylation is to exclude H2A.Z from constitutively expressed genes.

Project description:We sequenced mRNA from two-week old rice seedlings of jmj704 and wild-type (ZH11) plants to obtain the differntially expressed genes in jmj704 mutant. exzamination the differentially expressed genes between two-week old jmj704 and wild-type (ZH11) rice seedlings.
Project description:To explore the effect of stable RNAi on the small RNA (sRNA) population in wheat, we constructed a sRNA library from hexaploid wheat that expresses an RNAi construct under the 35S promoter that targets the endogenous NO APICAL MERISTEM (TaNAM) gene. The presence of this RNAi transgene causes a 40% reduction in expression of the target genes as measured by quantitative RT-PCR and significantly delays senescence and reduces remobilization of N, Fe, and Zn to the grain. RNA was extracted from flag-leaves of transgenic NAM-RNAi plants at 12 days post-anthesis. RNA was collected from a pool of flag-leaves from four plants.
Project description:A microarray analysis of whole-genome gene expression and single feature polymorphism in a (Populus trichocarpa X Populus deltoides) X Populus deltoides pseudo-backcross pedigree. Genetic variation in gene expression was quantified for 55,793 predicted gene models based on a single probe per gene. Concurrently, sequence-level polymorphism was analyzed based on dedicated probes identified in a pilot study comprised of the two parent genotypes (GPL7169). Resultant data contributed to a high density genetic map and to analysis of the genetic architecture of gene expression in Populus. Keywords: Genetic analysis of gene expression and polymorphism, eQTL Data include one biological replicate of 178 segregating pseudobackcross progeny analyzed for gene expression (GE) using one probe per gene for 55793 independent gene models (probes E_POPLARSxxxxxPxxxxx) and single feature sequence polymorphism (SFP) using one probe per gene for 12084 independent gene models (probes G_POPLARSxxxxxPxxxxx). GE and SFP probes were selected from 6-7 probes per gene previously tested in a pilot study of the two parent trees of the cross (Populus deltoides X Populus trichocarpa).
Project description:The I locus is a 27-kb inverted repeat cluster of chalcone synthase genes CHS1-3-4 that mediates siRNA down-regulation of CHS7 and CHS8 target mRNAs during seed development leading to yellow seed coats lacking anthocyanin pigments. Here, we report small RNA sequencing of ten stages of seed development from a few days post fertilization through maturity, revealing the amplification from primary to secondary short interfering RNAs (siRNAs) occurring during development. The young seed populations had a higher proportion of siRNAs representing the CHS1-3-4 gene family members, consistent with this region as the origin of the primary siRNAs. More intriguingly, the very young seed had a higher proportion of 22-nt CHS siRNAs than did the mid-maturation seed. We infer that the primary CHS siRNAs increase during development to levels sufficient to trigger amplification of secondary CHS siRNAs from the CHS7/8 target mRNAs, enabling the total levels of 21-nt CHS siRNAs to rise dramatically. Further, we demonstrate that the soybean system exhibits tissue-specific CHS siRNA production because primary CHS siRNA levels are not sufficient to trigger secondary amplification in tissues other than the seed coat. High-throughput sequencing using Genome Analyzer II and Illumina HiSeq 2000 was performed with two biological replicates (Some stages don't have replicate).
