Expression of drought tolerance genes in tropical upland rice cultivars (Oryza sativa)

R. D. D. Silveira, Abreu, F. R. M., Mamidi, S., McClean, P. E., Vianello, R. P., Lanna, A. C., Carneiro, N. P., and Brondani, C., Expression of drought tolerance genes in tropical upland rice cultivars (Oryza sativa), vol. 14, pp. 8181-8200, 2015.

Gene expression related to drought response in the leaf tissues of two Brazilian upland cultivars, the drought-tolerant Douradão and the drought-sensitive Primavera, was analyzed. RNA-seq identified 27,618 transcripts in the Douradão cultivar, with 24,090 (87.2%) homologous to the rice database, and 27,221 transcripts in the Primavera cultivar, with 23,663 (86.9%) homologous to the rice database.
