Virus-based MicroRNA Silencing
Authors:  Jinping Zhao and Yule Liu, date: 01/20/2016, view: 2240, Q&A: 0
Virus-based microRNA silencing (VbMS) is a viable and prompt method to screen and characterize the function of microRNAs (miRNAs) in plants. The Tobacco rattle virus (TRV)-based VbMS method was originally developed by the Yule Liu's group ...
