Abstract:RNA-Seq, a high-through put(HT) sequencing technique, has been used effectively in large-scale transcriptomic studies, and is particularly useful for improving gene structure information and mining of new genes. In this study, RNA-Seq HT technology was employed to analyze the transcriptome of yak ovary. After Illumina-Solexa deep sequencing, 26826516 clean reads with a total of 4828772880 bp were obtained from the ovary library. Alignment analysis showed that 16992 yak genes mapped to the yak genome and 3734 of these genes were involved in alternative splicing.Gene structure refinement analysis showed that 7340 genes that were annotatedin the yak genome could be extended at the 5' or 3' ends based on the alignments been the transcripts and the genome sequence. Novel transcript prediction analysis identified 6321 new transcripts with lengths ranging from180 to 14884 bp, and 2267 of them were predicted to code proteins. BLAST analysis of the new transcripts showed that 1200-4933 mapped to the non-redundant (nr), nucleotide (nt) and/or SwissProt sequence databases.Comparative statistical analysis of the new mapped transcripts showed that the majority of them were similar to genes in Bos taurus (41.4%), Bos grunniensmutus (33.0%), Ovis aries (6.3%), Homo sapiens (2.8%), Mus musculus (1.6%) and other species. Functional analysis showed that these expressed genes were involved in various Gene Ontology (GO) categories and Kyoto Encyclopedia of Genes and Genomes pathways. GO analysis of the new transcripts found that the largest proportion of them was associated with reproduction. The results of this study will provide a basis for describing the normal transcriptome map of yak ovary and for future studies on yak breeding performance. Moreover, the results confirmed that RNA-Seq HT technology is highly advantageous in improving gene structure information and mining of new genes, as well as inproviding valuable data to expand the yak genome information.
