[…] the unrooted phylogenetic tree by the neighbor joining method with a bootstrap analysis of 1000 replicates using MEGA 7.0 (). The exon-intron structure of each OsYUC gene was identified by using the Gene Structure Display Server (). […]


Genome Wide Analyses of Calcium Sensors Reveal Their Involvement in Drought Stress Response and Storage Roots Deterioration after Harvest in Cassava

PMCID: 5924563
PMID: 29671773
DOI: 10.3390/genes9040221

[…] fied CaMs, CMLs, and CBLs had at least one EF-hand domain, indicating their typical family features of calcium binding.Additionally, the exon-intron organizations of these genes were tested using the GSDS database (). For the CaM family, group A shows two to three exons and group B contains four exons. For the CML family, group A shows three to five exons, group B has four exons, group C has one t […]
