MicroRNAs (miRNA) are approximately 21-nucleotide small non-coding RNA sequences that act as post-transcriptional regulators in both plants and animals.
Plant miRNAs play key roles in various regulatory pathways, including leaf and flower development, embryonic patterning, plant growth, and defense response against stress.
According to provisional results, we found six candidate miRNAs. Our study supports the existence of different plant species homologous miRNAs.
To predict candidate miRNA targets once the olive genome has been sequenced.
