- ... Retrotransposons represent a major component of plant genomes; however, large-scale studies on their expression are rare. Massively parallel sequencing offers new analytical possibilities enabling a comprehensive study of retrotransposon RNA transcription. We evaluated the expression of long terminal repeat-retrotransposons in leaves of two sister hybrids Populus × canadensis (P. deltoides × P. ni ...
