Brief bio: During my postgraduate study, I mainly explored the biological function of non-coding RNA in cotton by combining various omics data. In this study, we annotated lncRNAs with accurate splicing sites, transcriptional initiation and termination sites in G. arboreum by combining multi-strategy RNA-seq data. The transcriptional characteristics of full-length lncRNA were analyzed, and the regulation of lncRNA on targeted coding genes was predicted based on transcriptome data.
