Drought is a major abiotic stress that affects plant growth, production, and survival. Plants have evolved sophisticated and highly complex reactions to drought stress, including large-scale transcriptome reconfiguration. Foxtail millet (Setaria italica) is a member of the Poaceae family. Because of its outstanding tolerance to drought stress foxtail millet(More)
MicroRNAs (miRNAs) are a class of short non-coding, endogenous RNAs that play key roles in many biological processes in both animals and plants. Although many miRNAs have been identified in a large number of organisms, the miRNAs in foxtail millet (Setaria italica) have, until now, been poorly understood. In this study, two replicate small RNA libraries(More)
m6A is a ubiquitous RNA modification in eukaryotes. Transcriptome-wide m6A patterns in Arabidopsis have been assayed recently. However, differential m6A patterns between organs have not been well characterized. Over two-third of the transcripts in Arabidopsis are modified by m6A. In contrast to a recent observation of m6A enrichment in 5′ mRNA, we find that(More)
