Petunia axillaris draft genome sequence v1.6.2
A draft sequence of the Petunia axillaris genome, one of the ancestors of Petunia hybrida, is publicly available (Bombarely et al, 2016).
The P. axillaris N genome sequence, was performed using a hybrid de novo assembly with a combination of short read (Illumina; coverage 137X) and long read technologies (PacBio; coverage 22X)
The Petunia axillaris genome data are accessible on SGN through BLAST, JBrowse and the SGN VIGS Tool, and they can be downloaded from the SGN ftp site.
