Wheat is an excellent species to study freezing tolerance and other abiotic stresses. However, the sequence of the wheat genome has not been completely characterized due to its complexity and large size. To circumvent this obstacle and identify genes involved in cold acclimation and associated stresses, a large scale EST sequencing approach was undertaken(More)
MicroRNAs (miRNAs) and the mRNA targets of miRNAs were identified by sequence complementarity within a DNA sequence database for species of the Triticeae. Data screening identified 28 miRNA precursor sequences from 15 miRNA families that contained conserved mature miRNA sequences within predicted stem-loop structures. In addition, the identification of 337(More)
Freezing tolerance in plants develops through acclimation to cold by growth at low, above-freezing temperatures. Wheat is one of the most freezing-tolerant plants among major crop species and the wide range of freezing tolerance among wheat cultivars makes it an excellent model for investigation of the genetic basis of cold tolerance. Large numbers of genes(More)
Using microarray analysis, we identified regulatory and signaling-related genes with differential expression in three genotypes with varying degrees of salt tolerance, Triticum aestivum , the amphiploid, and the wheat substitution line DS3E(3A). Lophopyrum elongatum is among one of the most salt-tolerant members of the Triticeae; important genetic stocks(More)
