Deletion of a gene cluster encoding pectin degrading enzymes in Caldicellulosiruptor bescii reveals an important role for pectin in plant biomass recalcitrance
Abstract Background A major obstacle, and perhaps the most important economic barrier to the effective use of plant biomass ...
Transcriptomic analysis highlights epigenetic and transcriptional regulation during zygotic embryo development of Pinus pinaster
Abstract Background It is during embryogenesis that the plant body plan is established and the meristems responsible for all post-embryonic growth are specified. The molecular mechanisms governing ...
Microarray analysis and scale-free gene networks identify candidate regulators in drought-stressed roots of loblolly pine (P. taeda L.)
Abstract Background Global transcriptional analysis of loblolly pine (Pinus taeda L.) is challenging due to limited molecular tools. PtGen2, a 26,496 feature cDNA microarray, was fabricated and used to assess drought-induced ...
Comparison of next generation sequencing technologies for transcriptome characterization
Abstract Background We have developed a simulation approach to help determine the optimal mixture of sequencing methods for most ...
A SNP resource for Douglas-fir: de novo transcriptome assembly and SNP detection and validation
Abstract Background Douglas-fir (Pseudotsuga menziesii), one of the most economically and ecologically important tree species in the world, also has one of the largest tree breeding programs. ...
Transcriptome and methylome profiling reveals relics of genome dominance in the mesopolyploid Brassica oleracea
Abstract Background Brassica oleracea is a valuable vegetable species that has contributed to human health and nutrition for hundreds of years and comprises multiple distinct cultivar ...
