Project description:Due to its small and sequenced genome, short generation time, efficient transformation and increasing genetic resources, Brachypodium distachyon is an emerging model for grasses. Despite this, data capturing gene expression patterns across different organs and developmental stages is missing. We have generated a comprehensive gene expression atlas for Brachypodium, capturing 9 different organs and developmental stages
Project description:In this study we treated Brachypodium distachyon roots with synthetic auxin, 2,4-D, to induce nodule-like structures (NLS) and performed RNA-seq to assess transcriptome changes during NLS formation. Overall design: Three biological replicates per treatment; total RNA was isolated individually from each replicate.
Project description:RNA-seq reads generated from Brachypodium distachyon (Bd21-3) seedlings infected with Fusarium pseudograminearum. Samples were collected 3 days post innoculation in four replicates.
Project description:Deep sequencing of Brachypodium distachyon small RNA from panicles (flowers) was done to analyze the genome-wide distribution patterns of 1) total small RNA reads and loci, 2) 21 and 24 nucleotide repeat-normalized reads and 3) 21 and 24 nucleotide phased siRNA clusters relative to gene and transposable element density. Overall design: Small RNA were extracted from total RNA by size fractionation and converted to DNA amplicons by serial adaptor ligation to both ends followed by RT-PCR. DNA amplicons were sequenced using an Ilumina Genome Analyzer. Resulting sequences were computationally trimmed to remove 3' adaptor sequences. Raw data for GSM506621 was not provided.
Project description:The aim was to determine the changes in cell wall composition and transcriptome changes following treatment with the stress hormone precursor methyl jasmonate (MeJA) in the model grass Brachypodium distachyon. The correlation between transcript changes and cell wall composition changes allowed identification of candidate genes responsible for grass-specific features of the cell wall that are specifically changed in response to MeJA.
