Project description:Illumina HiSeq technology was used to generate mRNA profiles from Meliniomyces bicolor mycorrhizal roots compared to free-living mycelium . Mycorrhizal roots and control mycelium were harvested after 113 days and used for RNA extraction. Reads of 150bp were generated and aligned to Meliniomyces bicolor transcripts (https://genome.jgi.doe.gov/Melbi2/Melbi2.home.html) using CLC Genomics Workbench 8. Overall design: mRNA profiles from Meliniomyces bicolor mycorrhizal roots and free-living mycelium were generated by 150bp Illumina HiSeq2500 sequencing. Three biological replicates were sequenced for mycorrhizal and mycelium samples.
