- ... MicroRNAs (miRNAs) play important roles in response of plants to biotic and abiotic stresses. Aluminum (Al) toxicity is a major factor limiting plant growth in acidic soils. However, there has been limited report on the involvement of miRNAs in response of plants to toxic Al3+. To identify Al3+-responsive miRNAs at whole-genome level, high-throughput sequencing technology was used to sequence libr ...
