Genome Sequencing

   Plant Genomics researchers have readily clinged to new algorithms, technologies and approaches to generate genome, transcriptome and epigenome datasets for model and crop species that have permitted deep inferences into plant biology. When a species’ reference genome is available, whole-genome sequencing is an efficient approach for discovering genes, SNPs, and structural variants, while simultaneously determining genotypes. Information from these studies will fill in the gaps that exist in the genetic maps of many plant species, improving plant breeding and selection, and enabling definitive comparative genomic analyses within and across species and few associations includes
