    Abstract
    Plant interactions with biotic and abiotic stresses are complex and entail changes at the transcriptional, cellular and physiological level. MicroRNAs are small , non-coding RNAs that play a vital role in wide range of biological processes involved in regulation of gene expression through translation inhibition or degradation of their target mRNAs during stress conditions. Therefore, identification of miRNAs and their targets are of immense value in understanding the regulatory networks triggered during stress. Advancement in computational approaches has opened up ways for the...
