Global Analysis of Transcriptome Responses and Gene Expression Profiles to Cold Stress on Jatropha curca L.

H.B. Wang, Z.R. Zou, S.S. Wang & M. Gong
Jatropha curcas L. (J. curcas), is an oil-rich shrub species with multiple uses especially for biodiesel production. Low temperature mainly affects their distribution and production. The newly developed Illumina Hiseq™ 2000 RNA-seq and Digital Gene Expression (DGE) are deep high-throughput approaches for gene expression analysis at the transcriptome level, by which we delicately investigated the gene expression profiles under cold stress in order to gain more insights into the molecular mechanism of cold response in...
