Data from: Carbonic Anhydrases, EPF2 and a Novel Protease Mediate CO2 Control of Stomatal Development
Data are deposited here from RNA-Seq transcriptomic experiments analyzing the Arabidopsis response to low and elevated carbon dioxide growing conditions. BAM, BAI and TDF files are uploaded from three independent biological replicates that we conducted for wild type and carbonic anhydrase mutant seedlings. Each set of replicates includes >1000 seedlings per sample and both genotypes were grown at low and elevated CO2 (hence 4 samples per set of replicates). Sampling was done at 5 days after germination to capture early signaling events as seedlings were adapting to the CO2 stimulus.
