Identification and characterization of salt-responsive microRNAs in Populus tomentosa by high-throughput sequencing.

Salt is one of the main environmental factors limiting plant growth and a better understanding of mechanisms of salt stress would aid efforts to bolster plant salt tolerance. MicroRNAs are well known for their important regulatory roles in response to abiotic stress in plants. In this study, high-throughput sequencing was employed to identify miRNAs in… CONTINUE READING
