The jujube (Ziziphus jujuba Mill.), a member of family Rhamnaceae, is a major dry fruit and a traditional herbal medicine for more than one billion people. Here we present a high-quality sequence for the complex jujube genome, the first genome sequence of Rhamnaceae, using an integrated strategy. The final assembly spans 437.65 Mb (98.6% of the estimated)(More)
BACKGROUND Ziziphus Mill. (jujube), the most valued genus of Rhamnaceae, comprises of a number of economically and ecologically important species such as Z. jujuba Mill., Z. acidojujuba Cheng et Liu and Z. mauritiana Lam. Single nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) markers and a high-density genetic map are of great benefit to the improvement of the crop, mapping(More)
Conventional approaches to the polyploid breeding of fruit trees are severely limited by the unavoidable problem of mixoploidy. This is caused because the traditional approach to inducing polyploidization is the application of anti-mitotic agents like colchicines to organs, such as apical or axillary buds, which prevents the doubling of chromosomes in some(More)
