Second generation DNA sequencing technologies have been a great boon for the study of mRNA polyadenylation. The experimental determination of large numbers of polyadenylation sites using highthroughput sequencing strategies has provided the necessary platform for deeper understanding the regulation of gene expression in eukaryotes. For generating large sets of data to map poly-A sites, specialized sample preparations that target the junction of 3′-UTR and the poly(A) tail are usually employed. Here, we describe three different protocols that are effectively used for global determinations of poly(A) site choice in plants.
