Project description:In order to research the ginseng leaf-stem gene expression profiles of and dig out its function genes in the leaf-expansion period, the transcriptomic sequencing technology was set up the first time for five years the transcription of the Panax ginseng leaf-stem in the leaf-expansion period.
Project description:Panax ginseng C.A. Meyer is one of the most popular medicinal herbs. In order to research the genes that related to the flowering period of ginseng, and find out the antifungal proteins and transcription factors that combat various biotic and abiotic stress, a cDNA sample was prepared from the flowering period ginseng root of a five-year-old plant and sequenced using the Illumina sequencing platform. In this study, we produced nearly 40 million sequencing reads. These reads were assembled into 134,045 contigs using Trinity software (mean size: 282 bp). Based on a similarity search with known proteins, we identified 79,307 sequences with a cut-off E-value of 10-5. Assembled sequences were then annotated using gene ontology (GO) terms, clusters of orthologous group (COG) classifications and Kyoto Encyclopedia of Genes and Genomes (KEGG) pathways respectively.
