    Abstract
    Populus alba  ×  P. glandulosa clone 84 K, derived from South Korea, is widely cultivated in China and used as a model in the molecular research of woody plants because of high gene transformation efficiency. Here, we combined 63-fold coverage Illumina short reads and 126-fold coverage PacBio long reads to assemble the genome. Due to the high heterozygosity level at 2.1% estimated by k -mer analysis, we exploited TrioCanu for genome assembly. The PacBio clean subreads of P. alba  ×  P. glandulosa were separated into two parts according to the similarities, compared with the...
