Genome-wide cis-decoding for expression design in tomato using cistrome data and explainable deep learning

Genome-wide cis-decoding for expression design in tomato using cistrome data and explainable deep learning

Abstract: In the evolutionary history of plants, variation in cis-regulatory elements (CREs) resulting in diversification of gene expression has played a central role in driving the evolution of lineage-specific traits....

OsAAP6 functions as an important regulator of grain protein content and nutritional quality in rice

OsAAP6 functions as an important regulator of grain protein content and nutritional quality in rice

Abstract: Grains from cereals contribute an important source of protein to human food, and grain protein content (GPC) is an important determinant of nutritional quality in cereals. Here we show...

H1 linker histones silence repetitive elements by promoting both histone H3K9 methylation and chromatin compaction

H1 linker histones silence repetitive elements by promoting both histone H3K9 methylation and chromatin compaction

Abstract: Nearly 50% of mouse and human genomes are composed of repetitive sequences. Transcription of these sequences is tightly controlled during development to prevent genomic instability, inappropriate gene activation and...

Splicing-mediated activation of SHAGGY-like kinases underpinning carbon partitioning in Arabidopsis seeds

Splicing-mediated activation of SHAGGY-like kinases underpinning carbon partitioning in Arabidopsis seeds

Abstract: Glycogen synthase kinase 3 (GSK3) family members serve as signaling hubs for plant development and stress responses, yet the underlying mechanism of their transcriptional regulation remains a long-standing mystery....

Role of lncRNAs in cis- and trans-regulatory responses to salt in Populus trichocarpa

Role of lncRNAs in cis- and trans-regulatory responses to salt in Populus trichocarpa

Abstract: Long non-coding RNAs (lncRNAs) are emerging as versatile regulators in diverse biological processes. How- ever, little is known about their cis- and trans-regulatory contributions in gene expression under salt...

ReFeaFi: Genome-wide prediction of regulatory elements driving transcription initiation

ReFeaFi: Genome-wide prediction of regulatory elements driving transcription initiation

Abstract: Regulatory elements control gene expression through transcription initiation (promoters) and by enhancing transcription at distant regions (enhancers). Accurate identification of reg- ulatory elements is fundamental for annotating genomes and...
