• Sequencing of Camelina neglecta, a diploid progenitor of the hexaploid oilseed Camelina sativa

    16 days ago - By Wiley

    Summary
    Camelina neglecta is a diploid species from the genus Camelina, which includes the versatile oilseed Camelina sativa. These species are closely related to Arabidopsis thaliana and the economically important Brassica crop species, making this genus a useful platform to dissect traits of agronomic importance, while providing a tool to study evolution of polyploids. A highly contiguous chromosome level genome sequence of C. neglecta with an N50 size of 29.1 Mb was generated utilizing Pacific Biosciences long read sequencing followed by chromosome conformation phasing.
