[…] sition were considered. Known sRNAs were identified by searching public databases using BLAST version 2.2.19 [] and allowing up to two mismatches. The following databases and sequences were searched: Transfer RNA Database (version 2009) [], Plant Small Nucleolar RNA Database (v1.2) [], SILVA (ribosomal RNA database, v100) [], The Arabidopsis Small RNA Project (ASRP) Database [], Rfam Database 10.0 […]
