MicroRNAs are approximately 21-nt long, non-coding RNAs that play critical roles in post-transcriptional gene regulation. Even though a large number of miRNAs have been identified, annotating their functions remains a challenge. We develop a computational, transcriptome-based approach to annotating stress-inducible microRNAs in plants. With this approach, we find that nineteen microRNA genes of eleven microRNA families in Arabidopsis thaliana are up-regulated by cold stress. Our experiments… CONTINUE READING
