Conservation and divergence of plant microRNA genes.
MicroRNA (miRNA) is one class of newly identified, small, non-coding RNAs that play versatile and important roles in post-transcriptional gene regulation. All miRNAs have similar secondary hairpinExpand
Plant microRNA: a small regulatory molecule with big impact.
MicroRNAs (miRNAs) are an abundant new class of non-coding approximately 20-24 nt small RNAs. To date, 872 miRNAs, belonging to 42 families, have been identified in 71 plant species by geneticExpand
Identification of soybean microRNAs and their targets
The microRNAs (miRNAs) are a newly identified class of small non-protein-coding regulatory RNA. Using comparative genomics, we identified 69 miRNAs belonging to 33 families in the domesticatedExpand
Identification of 188 conserved maize microRNAs and their targets
MicroRNAs (miRNAs) represent a newly identified class of non‐protein‐coding ∼20 nt small RNAs which play important roles in multiple biological processes by degrading targeted mRNAs or repressingExpand

MicroRNAs (miRNAs) are an extensive class of endogenous, small RNA molecules that sit at the heart of regulating gene expression in multiple developmental and signalling pathways. Recent studies haveExpand
Assessment of pathogens and toxicants in New Orleans, LA following Hurricane Katrina.
Storm surge associated with Hurricane Katrina and the breach of levees protecting New Orleans, Louisiana allowed floodwaters from Lake Pontchartrain to inundate 80% of the city. Environmental samplesExpand
Genome-Wide Functional Analysis of the Cotton Transcriptome by Creating an Integrated EST Database
A total of 28,432 unique contigs (25,371 in consensus contigs and 3,061 as singletons) were assembled from all 268,786 cotton ESTs currently available. Several in silico approaches [comparativeExpand
Identification and characterization of microRNAs and their targets in the bioenergy plant switchgrass (Panicum virgatum)
MicroRNAs (miRNAs) are a class of non-coding small endogenous RNAs with lengths of ~22 nucleotides (nt) that have been shown to regulate gene expression at the post-transcriptional levels byExpand
Identification of cotton microRNAs and their targets.
No study has been performed on identifying microRNAs (miRNAs) and their targets in cotton although cotton is one of the most important fiber and economic crops around the world. In this study, weExpand
MicroRNAs and their regulatory roles in animals and plants
microRNAs (miRNAs) are an abundant class of newly identified endogenous non‐protein‐coding small RNAs. They exist in animals, plants, and viruses, and play an important role in gene silencing.Expand
