Genomes and transcriptome atlases for extremophyte models

Schrenkiella parvula




(Dassanayake et al., Nature Genetics, 2011)

Next Generation Sequencing (NGS) technologies have enabled high throughput sequencing of genomes and transriptomes of previously unexplored species. We have used NGS to create reference genomes and transcriptomes of plants adapted to multiple abiotic stresses. We use hybrid assembly pipelines to assemble short reads (< 300 bp) and long-reads (> 100 kbp) into longest possible contiguous sequences that can serve as reference sequences for comparative genomics and transcriptomics studies.

(See the RESOURCES page for updates on the genome assembly and annotations of extremophyte models.)
