e-infrastructure Roadmap for Open Science in Agriculture

A bibliometric study

The e-ROSA project seeks to build a shared vision of a future sustainable e-infrastructure for research and education in agriculture in order to promote Open Science in this field and as such contribute to addressing related societal challenges. In order to achieve this goal, e-ROSA’s first objective is to bring together the relevant scientific communities and stakeholders and engage them in the process of coelaboration of an ambitious, practical roadmap that provides the basis for the design and implementation of such an e-infrastructure in the years to come.

This website highlights the results of a bibliometric analysis conducted at a global scale in order to identify key scientists and associated research performing organisations (e.g. public research institutes, universities, Research & Development departments of private companies) that work in the field of agricultural data sources and services.

Identification and Characterization of MicroRNAs and Their Targets in Peach (Prunus persica)


Through homology-based computational approach, 159 highly conserved microRNAs were identified in peach genomic sequence. These miRNAs were predicted to target 395 mRNAs, covering 481 gene ontology items. Majority of these targets were demonstrated to participate in a variety of biological processes. Through mapping to Kyoto Encyclopedia of Genes and Genomes database, it was found that the targets play roles in 93 metabolism pathways including the pathway K04075 that involves in plant hormone signal transduction and contains the most abundant genes. According to Gene Ontology prediction, peach microRNAs were found to regulate biological process relevant to agronomic traits such as fruit repining and flower development. In addition, microRNAs responding to abiotic and biotic stress were uncovered and the putative functions of their important targets related to stress resistance were discussed. In summary, the results have significantly advanced our knowledge of microRNA population in peach, provided a better understanding of microRNA-mediated gene regulation and allowed a better application of this knowledge for improving peach yields and qualities.
