The complex allotetraploid nature of the cotton genome (AADD; 2n = 52) makes genetic, genomic and functional analyses extremely challenging. Here we sequenced and assembled the Gossypium arboreum (AA; 2n = 26) genome, a putative contributor of the A subgenome. A total of 193.6 Gb of clean sequence covering the genome by 112.6-fold was obtained by paired-end sequencing. We further anchored and oriented 90.4% of the assembly on 13 pseudochromosomes and found that 68.5% of the genome is occupied… 
Bioinformatics for the Comparative Genomic Analysis of the Cotton (Gossypium) Polyploid Complex
TLDR
PolyCat is developed to categorize reads according to their genome of origin based on homoeo-SNPs that differentiate the two genomes, and a robust index of conserved SNPs between the A-genomes and Dgenomes at all detected polymorphic loci is constructed.
Genome sequence of cultivated Upland cotton (Gossypium hirsutum TM-1) provides insights into genome evolution
TLDR
A draft genome using 181-fold paired-end sequences assisted by fivefold BAC-to-BAC sequences and a high-resolution genetic map is produced for G. hirsutum, revealing conserved gene order and concerted evolution of different regulatory mechanisms for Cellulose synthase and 1-Aminocyclopropane-1-carboxylic acid oxidase1 and 3 may be important for enhanced fiber production.
Systematic Comparisons of Positively Selected Genes between Gossypium arboreum and Gossypium raimondii Genomes
TLDR
Comparisons between the genomes of two cotton species indicate that divergence of G. arboreum and G. raimondii was associated with differences in PSGs in terms of evolutionary rates, gene length, expression patterns, and WGD retention in Gossypium.
Comparative Chloroplast Genomics of Gossypium Species: Insights Into Repeat Sequence Variations and Phylogeny
TLDR
The results of this study provide new insights into the evolution of repeat sequences in chloroplast genomes and interspecific relationships in the genus Gossypium.
Entire nucleotide sequences of Gossypium raimondii and G. arboreum mitochondrial genomes revealed A-genome species as cytoplasmic donor of the allotetraploid species.
TLDR
The presence/absence variations and gene-based phylogeny supported that A-genome is a cytoplasmic donor to the progenitor of allotetraploid species G. hirsutum and G.barbadense, the economically important fibre-producing cotton species.
The Gossypium herbaceum L. Wagad genome as a resource for understanding cotton domestication
TLDR
The utility of the G. herbaceum cv Wagad genome in understanding domestication in the diploid species, which could inform modern breeding programs is demonstrated, and its analyses to gene expression using available RNA-seq are extended.
Rapid evolutionary divergence of Gossypium barbadense and G. hirsutum mitochondrial genomes
TLDR
Comparison of genome structures between the two mitochondrial genomes revealed 8 rearranged syntenic regions and several large repeats that highlight the insights to the evolution of structural variation between Sea Island and upland cotton mitochondrial genomes.
Whole genome sequencing of cotton—a new chapter in cotton genomics
TLDR
The genome sequence of the allotetraploid G. hirsutum (AtDt) is completed by using the second generation high-throughput sequencing technology assisted by 5-fold traditional BAC-to-BAC sequences.
Genetics and Genomics of Cottonseed Oil
TLDR
Whole-genome sequencing will serve as a foundation in developing cotton germplasm that can improve cottonseed oil without disturbing lint yield components.
Cotton genome evolution and features of its structural and functional organization
TLDR
The data support the fact that the expression of genes in allotetraploid cotton changes as a result of polyploidization, and that one of the two subgenomes dominates in the formation of one or another trait.

Differential lineage-specific amplification of transposable elements is responsible for genome size variation in Gossypium.
TLDR
To understand the modes and mechanisms that underlie variation in genome composition, sequence data from whole genome shotgun libraries for three representative diploid members of Gossypium were generated and a pattern of lineage-specific amplification of particular subfamilies of retrotransposons within each species studied was demonstrated.

The genome of the domesticated apple (Malus × domestica Borkh.)
TLDR
It is shown that a relatively recent (>50 million years ago) genome-wide duplication has resulted in the transition from nine ancestral chromosomes to 17 chromosomes in the Pyreae, which partly support the monophyly of the ancestral paleohexaploidy of eudicots.
Repeated polyploidization of Gossypium genomes and the evolution of spinnable cotton fibres
TLDR
It is shown that an abrupt five- to sixfold ploidy increase approximately 60 million years (Myr) ago, and allopolyploidy reuniting divergent Gossypium genomes approximately 1–2 Myr ago, conferred about 30–36-fold duplication of ancestral angiosperm genes in elite cottons, genetic complexity equalled only by Brassica among sequenced angiosperms.
