2019 SPHI Brief 34. Genomic tools for sweetpotato improvement project (GT4SP).

We developed genomic and genetic resources for sweetpotato improvement, including genome sequencing and annotation of two diploid relatives, to be used as reference genomes for cultivated sweetpotato. We developed a sequence-based single nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) genotyping platform, with supporting bioinformatics and analytical tools to facilitate marker-assisted breeding. We additionally developed …
