  3. c 14-d-old-seedling grown under cold stress at 4°C for 24 h in darkness.
  4. d 14-d-old-seedling treated with 20% PEG-6000.
  5. e The percentage of co-cis- NATs in the corresponding total cis- NATs was calculated.
  6. f Small RNAs were only enriched in the overlapping regions with more than five reads.
  7. g The density of siRNAs in overlapping regions was > 5 times that in non-overlapping regions.
