Multi-strategic RNA-seq analysis reveals a high-resolution transcriptional landscape in cotton.

ABSTRACT: Cotton is an important natural fiber crop, however, its comprehensive and high-resolution gene map is lacking. Here we integrate four complementary high-throughput techniques, including Pacbio long read Iso-seq, strand-specific RNA-seq, CAGE-seq, and PolyA-seq, to systematically explore the transcription landscape across 16 tissues or different organ types in Gossypium arboreum. We devise a computational pipeline, named IGIA, to reconstruct accurate gene structures from the integrated data. Our results reveal a dynamic and diverse transcriptional map in cotton: tissue-specific gene expression, alternative usage of TSSs and polyadenylation sites, hotspot of alternative splicing, and transcriptional read-through. These regulated events affect many genes in various aspects such as gain or loss of functional RNA motifs and protein domains, fine-tuning of DNA binding activity, and co-regulation for genes in the same complex or pathway. The methods and findings provide valuable resources for further functional genomic studies such as understanding natural SNP variations for plant community.
