Transcriptome sequencing of Norway spruce (Picea abies) root sections. Seedling roots are sectioned in parts, reflecting developmental stages of the root. We want to analyze gene expression in the different sections, and correlate these to gene expression in LCM collected material of specific tissue types of the root. In a first round material of three different parts of the root and in a second round samples of the four different parts and the whole root were sequenced. Recently, LCM collected material was send for sequencing. The transcriptomes will be mapped to the spruce genome and differentially expressed genes will be identified.
