APPLIED BEAN GENOMICS AND BIOPRODUCTS
SEQUENCE NOW AVAILABLE!!
We are pleased to announce that the full pseudochrome sequence for the white bean OAC Rex is now available for download @
OAC Rex was the first CBB resistant white bean variety released in North America and this genome assembly represents the most complete Mesoamerican bean genome to date. The sequence data will provide a valuable research tool for both breaders and researchers. The genome was generated using an Illumina HiSeq paired end, along with 2.5kb and 5kb mate paried libraries, and assembled using ALLPATHS. In silico annotation was performed using MAKER, using the G19833v1.0 release as a model
A multi-interinstitutional partnership between the University of Guelph, the University of Western Ontario, the University of Windsor and Agriculture and AgriFood Canada has acquired through public, private sector and institutional support over $11 M in funding and resources to advance the study of Phaseolus vulgaris genomics and bioproduct development.
