The flowering plant Arabidopsis thaliana is a dicot model organism for research in many aspects of plant biology. [] Key Result Using an integrative annotation pipeline, we assembled tissue-specific RNA-Seq libraries from 113 datasets and constructed 48 359 transcript models of protein-coding genes in eleven tissues. In addition, we annotated various classes of non-coding RNA including microRNA, long intergenic RNA, small nucleolar RNA, natural antisense transcript, small nuclear RNA, and small RNA using…

Towards annotating the plant epigenome: the Arabidopsis thaliana small RNA locus map
TLDR
This work mapped smallRNAs to the genome of the model organism Arabidopsis thaliana and defined loci based on their expression using an empirical Bayesian approach, which broadly conforms to previously reported divisions between transcriptional and post-transcriptional gene silencing small RNAs and to PolIV and PolV dependencies.
Characterization of novel pollen-expressed transcripts reveals their potential roles in pollen heat stress response in Arabidopsis thaliana
TLDR
RNAseq datasets of developing and germinating Arabidopsis thaliana pollen exposed to heat stress (HS), identified 66 novel and 246 recently-annotated intergenic expressed loci (XLOCs) of unknown function, with the majority encoding lncRNAs.
TrancriptomeReconstructoR: data-driven annotation of complex transcriptomes
Background The quality of gene annotation determines the interpretation of results obtained in transcriptomic studies. The growing number of genome sequence information calls for experimental and
New insights into Arabidopsis transcriptome complexity revealed by direct sequencing of native RNAs
TLDR
Direct RNA Sequencing (DRS) using the latest Oxford Nanopore Technology (ONT) offers an advantage in the identification and functional characterization of novel RNA isoforms and RNA base modifications, significantly improving annotation of the A. thaliana genome.
Molecular Traits of Long Non-protein Coding RNAs from Diverse Plant Species Show Little Evidence of Phylogenetic Relationships
TLDR
GC content was the only tested trait of lncRNAs with consistently significant and high phylogenetic signal, contrary to high signal in all tested molecular traits for the other transcripts in the authors' tested plant species.
TrancriptomeReconstructoR, A Data-Driven Annotation of Complex Transcriptomes
Background: The quality of gene annotation determines the interpretation of results obtained in transcriptomic studies. The growing number of genome sequence information calls for experimental and
TrancriptomeReconstructoR: data-driven annotation of complex transcriptomes
TLDR
The TranscriptomeReconstructoR package, an R package which implements a pipeline for automated transcriptome annotation, identifies multiple transient transcripts missing from the existing annotations and promises to improve the quality of A.thaliana and S.cerevisiae genome research.
Transcriptome-guided annotation and functional classification of long non-coding RNAs in Arabidopsis thaliana
TLDR
This work presents a substantially improved annotation of Arabidopsis thaliana lncRNAs, generated by integrating 224 transcriptomes in multiple tissues, conditions, and developmental stages, and annotates 6764 lncRNA genes, including 3772 that are novel.
AtRTD2: A Reference Transcript Dataset for accurate quantification of alternative splicing and expression changes in Arabidopsis thaliana RNA-seq data
TLDR
A modified reference transcriptome, AtRTD2-QUASI, designed to address quantification of different isoforms and alternative splicing in gene expression studies is released and it is demonstrated that it out-performs other available transcriptomes for RNA-seq analysis.
Nanopore direct RNA sequencing maps an Arabidopsis N6 methyladenosine epitranscriptome
TLDR
It is shown that m6A can be mapped in full-length mRNAs transcriptome-wide and reveal the combinatorial diversity of cap-associated transcription start sites, splicing events, poly(A) site choice and poly( A) tail length.

Unveiling the complexity of the maize transcriptome by single-molecule long-read sequencing
TLDR
The results show that characterization of the maize B73 transcriptome is far from complete, and that maize gene expression is more complex than previously thought.
Integrated RNA-seq and sRNA-seq analysis identifies novel nitrate-responsive genes in Arabidopsis thaliana roots
TLDR
Sequencing of small RNAs and mRNAs uncovered new genes, and enabled us to develop new hypotheses for nitrate regulation and coordination of carbon and nitrogen metabolism.
Analysis of the genome sequence of the flowering plant Arabidopsis thaliana
TLDR
This is the first complete genome sequence of a plant and provides the foundations for more comprehensive comparison of conserved processes in all eukaryotes, identifying a wide range of plant-specific gene functions and establishing rapid systematic ways to identify genes for crop improvement.
Function annotation of the rice transcriptome at single-nucleotide resolution by RNA-seq.
TLDR
This study applied RNA-seq to globally sample transcripts of the cultivated rice Oryza sativa indica and japonica subspecies for resolving the whole-genome transcription profiles and found that approximately 48% of rice genes show alternative splicing patterns, considerably higher than previous estimations.
MicroRNA Gene Evolution in Arabidopsis lyrata and Arabidopsis thaliana[W][OA]
TLDR
The finding of numerous evolutionarily young MIRNA, many with low expression and few if any targets, supports a rapid birth-death model for M IRNA evolution, and the dynamic nature of the MIRna complement of plant genomes is emphasized.
