is a showy-flowered Andean shrub in the tomatillo subfamily (Physalideae) of the Solanaceae.
Iochroma cyaneum Data Access Agreement
PLEASE READ BEFORE ACCESSING THE PRE-PUBLICATION SEQUENCE OF Iochroma cyaneum
The Boyce Thompson Institute and the University of Colorado are pleased to make the pre-publication
genome assembly and annotation available as a resource for scientific research.
By accessing these data, I hereby agree to respect the rights of the consortium to analyze and
publish the first global analyses in a peer-reviewed publication according to the Toronto agreement.
1) whole chromosome or whole genome level analyses on genes, gene families, and repetitive sequences and
2) comparative analyses with other organisms.
Studies that do not overlap with those planned by the consortium may be undertaken following an agreement.
Please contact Dr. Stacey Smith
or Dr. Susan Strickler
to discuss such possibilities.
The data may be freely downloaded and used by all who respect the restrictions described above.
Any use of the I. cyaneum genome data prior to its publication must follow the agreement
and must credit "The Iochroma cyaneum Genome Consortium".
The genome was sequenced using Nanopore and Illumina technology and was assembled with Masurca. Contigs were error-corrected with Pilon and scaffolded with Hi-C. Gaps were filled with PacBio sequence using LR_gapcloser.
Genome assembly total length: 2,716 Mb
No. of contigs: 37,881
Longest contig: 3996 kb
Contig N50: 213 kb
84.1% of the assembly is assigned to chromosomes.
Annotation was conducted using the BRAKER pipeline, making use of both GeneMark-ET and AUGUSTUS for gene prediction. Sequence data used as input included RNA-seq from corollas, vegetative tissue (shoot plus root), reproductive tissue (stamen plus pistil), and seedlings. A total of 38,625 genes were predicted.
