BACKGROUND Sheepgrass [Leymus chinensis (Trin.) Tzvel.] is an important perennial forage grass across the Eurasian Steppe and is known for its adaptability to various environmental conditions. However, insufficient data resources in public databases for sheepgrass limited our understanding of the mechanism of environmental adaptations, gene discovery and(More)
Colobines are a unique group of Old World monkeys that principally eat leaves and seeds rather than fruits and insects. We report the sequencing at 146× coverage, de novo assembly and analyses of the genome of a male golden snub-nosed monkey (Rhinopithecus roxellana) and resequencing at 30× coverage of three related species (Rhinopithecus bieti,(More)
Sheepgrass [Leymus chinensis (Trin.) Tzvel.] is a dominant, rhizomatous grass that has extensive plasticity in adapting to various harsh environments. Based on data from 454 high-throughput sequencing (GS FLX) exposure to salt stress, an unknown functional MYB-related gene LcMYB1 was identified from sheepgrass. Tissue specific expression profiles showed(More)
miR-92 has been reported to be upregulated in several human cancers. Until now, its expression pattern and biological roles in human bladder cancer still remains unexplored. The present study aims to clarify its expression, function, and potential molecular mechanisms in bladder cancer. Using real-time PCR, we found that miR-92 was upregulated in bladder(More)
