Sweetpotato reference genome sequencing

Why we need genome sequences:

  1. The genome contains all the genetic information of an organism, which determines its phenotype
  2. High-quality reference genome sequence provides a foundation that can facilitate basic researches, gene/QTL cloning, molecular marker discovery and marker assisted breeding
  3. Genome sequences can help understand genome evolution and domestication history
