Analysis of the transcriptional responses in inflorescence

Jatropha curcas L. (Euphorbiaceae) is a perennial bush or small tree that is widely cultivated in tropical and subtropical climates. The oil content of J. curcas seeds is 30-40%, and J. curcas grows well on marginal lands, avoiding competition with food production. Thus, J. curcas is a potential biofuel plant [],[].However, its potential as a biofuel plant is limited by its poor seed yield [].
