RNA-Seq analysis of blueberry fruit identifies candidate genes involved in ripening and secondary metabolism


Published on

I presented these slides at the Plant Metabolic Network workshop held at the Plant Animal Genome Conference (PAG) XXII, January, 2014. The main goals of the talk were to describe RNA-Seq based annotation of a blueberry genome assembly and explain how we used PlantCyc enzyme data to associate blueberry genes with metabolic pathways.

  • I recomend to read the paper De novo transcriptome sequencing in Bixa orellana to identify genes involved in methylerythritol phosphate, carotenoid and bixin biosynthesis

  3. 3. Transcriptome project goals • Identify genes expressed in blueberry during fruit development and ripening. • Identify genes encoding enzymes responsible for synthesis of bioactive compounds. • Resources for breeding, genomics.
  4. 4. Why blueberry? • Popular food with health benefits - functional food. • Antioxidant, thanks to anthocyanin (other compounds) • Other pathways? diabetes learning & memory heart disease
