miRNA sequence alignments of the new miRNAs conserved in monocots. Figure 1a). Osa-miR1436 sequence conserved between rice and Aegilops. Figure b-f). miRNA sequence alignment of the newly identified rice miRNAs with the Osa-miR444. The Newly found miRNAs are conserved in related monocots and are included in the alignment. Osa-miR444 is highlighted with the yellow background. Red colored nucleotides in the newly identified miRNA in rice and other monocots indicate a nucleotide that is different from Osa-miR444.
