Tree age affects wood formation and yield. However, the underlying mechanisms are poorly understood, particularly at the molecular level. In this study, we investigated the transcriptomic changes of the uppermost main stems of Larix kaempferi in an entire rotation period using the RNA-Seq method. In total, ∼151 million reads were obtained from the stems of… CONTINUE READING
