BACKGROUND: The tuberous root of sweet potato is an important agricultural and biological organ. There are not sufficient transcriptomic and genomic data in public databases for understanding of the molecular mechanism underlying the tuberous root formation and development. Thus, high throughput transcriptome sequencing is needed to generate enormous transcript sequences from sweet potato root for gene discovery and molecular marker development. RESULTS: In this study, more than 59 million seque ...[more]
Project description:Global gene expression signatures was analysed through microarray expression profiling as a discovery platform to identify up and down regulated ESTs that represent genes involved in metabolic pathways in the leaf, fibrous root and storage root (tuber forming root) of sweetpotato (Ipomoea batatas) as affcted by high temperature stress (40oC) compared to ambient temperature (30oC). Also Global gene expression signatures was analysed by the same procedure to explore up and down regulated ESTs in tuberous root of sweet potato in comparison with fibrous root of Ipomoea cornea and identify unique ESTs that represent genes involved in tuber formation in sweet potato. Overall design: Organism : Ipomoea batatas Custom Ipomoea batatas 8x60k Gene Expression Microarray (AMADID:044020) designed by Genotypic Technology Private Limited.
Project description:Investigation of whole transcriptome gene expression level during tuberous root formation and development in sweetpotato (Ipomoea batatas) cv. Guangshu 87 Identification of transcription factors (TFs) during tuberous root formation and development in sweetpotato (Ipomoea batatas) cv. Guangshu 87 A total of 7 samples were analyzed using RNA isolated from sweetpotato roots at 10, 15, 20, 30, 60, 90, 120days after transplanting. Each sample had two biological replicates.
