Validating internal controls for quantitative plant gene expression studies
However, accurate measurement of gene expression with this method relies on the choice of a valid reference for data normalization.
Studies rarely verify that gene expression levels for reference genes are adequately consistent among the...
Transcription factor genes represent a sizable fraction of the genomes of all eukaryotic organisms, including higher plants .
Various high throughput techniques that allow the accurate quantification of expression levels (transcript abundance) of hundreds or thousands of genes are currently available .
