microRNAs (miRNAs) are a recently discovered class of small (~21 nt) endogenous gene regulators that have been shown to play an important role in plant growth and development by aiding in organ maturation, hormone signaling, tissue differentiation, and plant tolerance to environmental stress. Since a list of miRNAs has never been generated for tobacco, we(More)
