    Abstract
    Genome-wide oil biosynthesis was explored by de novo sequencing two cultivated olive tree varieties. This is the first report of the former variety sequencing. As outgroups, raw reads of cv. Leccino and scaffold-level assembly of cv. Farga were also retrieved. Each of these four cultivars was chromosome-scale assembled into 23 pseudochromosomes, with 1.31 Gbp , 0.93 Gbp , 0.7 Gbp , and 0.54 Gbp in size. Ab initio gene finding was performed on these assemblies, using wild olive tree -trained parameters. High numbers of gene models were predicted and anchored to the...
