MicroRNAs (miRNAs), a class of noncoding small RNAs (sRNAs), are widely involved in the response to high temperature (HT) stress at both the seedling and flowering stages. To dissect the roles of miRNAs in regulating male fertility in soybean cytoplasmic male sterility (CMS)-based F under HT, sRNA sequencing was performed using flower buds from HT-tolerant and HT-sensitive CMS-based F combinations (NF and YF, respectively). A total of 554 known miRNAs, 59 new members of known miRNAs, 712 novel miRNAs, and 1145 target genes of 580 differentially expressed miRNAs (DEMs) were identified under normal temperature and HT conditions.
