Data from: Datasets for transcriptomic analyses of maize leaves in response to Asian corn borer feeding and/or jasmonic acid

Corn (Zea mays) is one of the most widely grown crops throughout the world. However, many corn fields develop pest problems such as corn borers every year that seriously affect its yield and quality. Corn's response to initial insect damage involves a variety of changes to the levels of defensive enzymes, toxins, and communicative volatiles. Such a dramatic change secondary metabolism necessitates the regulation of gene expression at the transcript level. This Data In Brief paper summarizes the datasets of the transcriptome of corn plants in response to corn stalk borers (Ostrinia furnacalis) and/or methyl jasmonate (MeJA). Altogether, 39, 636 genes were found to be differentially expressed. The sequencing data are available in the NCBI SRA database under accession number SRS965087. This dataset will provide more scientific and valuable information for future work such as the study of the functions of important genes or proteins and develop new insect-resistant maize varieties. Includes supplementary tables and data in fasta and GTF format.

Intended Use
By summarizing datasets of corn plant transcriptomes in response to corn stalk borers (*Ostrinia furnacalis*) and/or methyl jasmonate (MeJA) the dataset provides information for future work such as the study of the functions of important genes or proteins, and will help develop new insect-resistant maize varieties. The RNA-seq data allows users to access the transcriptomic profile of corn in response to Asian corn borer damage and MeJA stress. The data evaluate the utility of Illumina platform for RNA-sequencing. Analyses of the significantly differentially expressed genes under Asian corn borer and MeJA treatment provide new targets for the development of insect-resistant maize varieties. Studies reveal maize defensive mechanism to the feeding of Asian corn borer and MeJA treatment.
