    Abstract
    Basic Leu zipper genes play pivotal, versatile roles in abiotic or biotic stress responses and in other biological processes. Knowledge on the evolutionary relationships and patterns of gene expression of bZIP family members in woody plants, however, has been limited. Here we identified and characterized 47 BpbZIP genes across the silver birch genome. With reference to bZIP classifications for Arabidopsis thaliana , all BpbZIP proteins clustered among 10 groups in phylogeny. The bZIP domains were divided into five patterns based on intron positions and splicing phases. A total of...
