Study : Transgenic and conventional cultivar comparison in response to salt stress
Transgenic and conventional cultivar comparison in response to salt stress
Soybean is one of the main sources of oil worldwide. Salinity severely affect its yield. GmSIN1 is a NAC transcription factor coding gene. Its overexpression (OE) transgenic lines greatly improved the yield in both common and saline fields. This study focuses on founding changes genes between GmSIN1 OE transgenic seedlings and control seedlings under salt stress or non-salt stress conditions. Illumina Solexa sequencing platform was used for the comparative analysis of transcriptome profiles in the roots and leaves of GmSIN1 OE transgenic seedlings and WEI6823 (control) seedlings under mock or 150 mM NaCl treatment for 6 hrs. Overall design: A total of 8 samples was analyzed. Two soybean genotypes, 2 treatment and 2 biological replicates per condition were used.
