Project description:Cytosine methylation is a base modification that is often used by genomes to store information that is stably inherited through mitotic cell divisions. Most cytosine DNA methylation is stable throughout different cell types or by exposure to different environmental conditions in plant genomes. Here, we profile the epigenomes of ~100 Glycine max lines to explore the extent of natural epigenomic variation. We also use these data to determine the extent to which DNA methylation variants are linked to genetic variations. Overall design: 100 MethylC-seq, 102 RNA-seq, 102 small RNA-seq of Glycine max.
Project description:Little is known about plant pathogenic response to parasitic plants, although some parasitic plants affect crop production in certain areas. To study this, we chose Glycine max as the model host plant and investigated changes in expression patterns after parasitization by Cuscuta using microarrays. Transcriptional change of Glycine max stem with and without Cuscuta at 2 different stages were compared

Project description:A transcriptome analysis of soybean seeds harvested at different developing stages (between stage 7.1 and stage 9) was carried out to understand the molecular events occuring during the acquisition of seed longevity during maturation. Overall design: RNAseq from developing Glycine max seeds from stage 7.1 (mid-seedfilling) to final maturation
Project description:Transcript profiling of control vs Mungbean yellow mosaic India virus infected Glycine max variety JS335. RNA samples were collected at 2 dpi to study change in transcript profile at early infection. Two-condition experiment, control vs. MYMIV infected.
Project description:Soybean (Glycine max) seeds are an important source of seed storage compounds, including protein, oil, and sugar used for food, feed, chemical, and biofuel production. We assessed detailed temporal transcriptional and metabolic changes in developing soybean embryos to gain a systems biology view of developmental and metabolic changes and to identify potential targets for metabolic engineering. Two major developmental and metabolic transitions were captured enabling identification of potential metabolic engineering targets specific to seed filling and to desiccation. The first transition involved a switch between different types of metabolism in dividing and elongating cells. The second transition involved the onset of maturation and desiccation tolerance during seed filling and a switch from photoheterotrophic to heterotrophic metabolism. Clustering analyses of metabolite and transcript data revealed clusters of functionally related metabolites and transcripts active in these different developmental and metabolic programs. The gene clusters provide a resource to generate predictions about the associations and interactions of unknown regulators with their targets based on “guilt-by-association” relationships. The inferred regulators also represent potential targets for future metabolic engineering of relevant pathways and steps in central carbon and nitrogen metabolism in soybean embryos and drought and desiccation tolerance in plants.

Project description:The temporal expression profile of Glycine max seeds was carried out to identify genes that are differentially expressed (DE) during seed development. Using the Affymetrix chip, we have for the first time provided a holistic view of the transcriptional landscape during seed development in four different developmental stages in Glycine max. cv. Pusa 16. The analysis of the differential expression patterns and functional category enrichment of DE genes highlighted specific and common significant coordination and enrichment of various biological processes during seed development which have led to the identification of few candidate genes related to inositol metabolism and especially in phytate biosynthesis. In conclusion, we have shown here a logical approach to identify possible candidate genes for fine tuning the metabolic flux for phytate generation, which may be altered by metabolic engineering in developing a low phytate phenotype. Seeds of Glycine max grown at 28/26°C, 16h/8h light/dark were collected at different developmental stages( 0-4mm, 4-8mm, 8-12mm and 12-16mm ) and analyzed. Samples in triplicates from each developmental stage were used for data generation on Affymetrix Chip, each time the earlier developmental stage was considered as control Vs the treatment, corresponding to the later developmental stage. For each biological replicates, RNA was extracted from 20 seeds collected from 5 different plants, grown in the same conditions using the Trizol method. RNA integrity was analyzed using bio analyzer (with RIN value more than 8).
