Create a database to integrate genetic map positions of miRNA-targeted genes, their expression profiles and their relations with quantitative fruit metabolic loci and yield associated traits. This database facilitates the construction of hypotheses aimed at defining physiological modes of action of the regulatory process underlying the metabolism of the tomato fruit.
miSolRNA database allows the simple extraction of metadata for the proposal of new hypothesis concerning possible roles of miRNAs in the regulation of tomato fruit metabolism.
- To map miRNAs and their predicted target sites both on expressed (SGN-UNIGENES) and newly annotated sequences (BAC sequences released)
- To co-locate any predicted miRNA-target interaction with metabolic QTL found in tomato fruits
- To retrieve expression data of target genes in tomato fruit along their developmental period
- To design further experiments for unresolved questions in complex trait biology based on the use of genetic materials that have been proven to be useful tools for map-based cloning experiments in Solanaceae plant species.
