Abstract

This study identifies 2,617 candidate genes related to anthocyanin biosynthesis in rice using microarray analysis and a newly developed maximum boundary range algorithm. Three seed developmental stages were examined in white cultivar and two black Dissociation insertion mutants. The resultant 235 transcription factor genes found to be associated with anthocyanin were classified into nine groups. It is compared the 235 genes by transcription factor analysis and 593 genes from among clusters of COGs related to anthocyanin functions. Total 32 genes were found to be expressed commonly. Among these, 9 unknown and hypothetical genes were revealed to be expressed at each developmental stage and were verified by RT-PCR. These genes most likely play regulatory roles in either anthocyanin production or metabolism during flavonoid biosynthesis. While these genes require further validation, our results underline the potential usefulness of the newly developed algorithm.

What Your Colleagues Say About Evolutionary Bioinformatics
I must say publishing with Evolutionary Bioinformatics was a great and partially unexpected experience.  It allowed me to understand the name 'Libertas Academica' is not just a name but a real issue.  The reviewers offered us stringent, rigorous but totally unprejudiced comments, the editor supported us and the paper visibility was very good.  Thank you again.
