Identification and comparison of long non-coding RNAs in the silk gland between the domestic and wild silkworms

lncRNA

Under long-term artificial selection, the domestic silkworm (Bombyx mori) has increased its silk yield tremendously in comparison with its wild progenitor, Bombyx mandarina. However, the molecular mechanism of silk yield increase is still unknown. Comparative analysis of long non-coding RNAs (lncRNAs) may provide some insights into understanding this phenotypic variation. In this study, using the RNA-seq data of silk gland ...
