We sequenced and assembled the draft genome of Theobroma cacao, an economically important tropical-fruit tree crop that is the source of chocolate. This assembly corresponds to 76% of the estimated genome size and contains almost all previously described genes, with 82% of these genes anchored on the 10 T. cacao chromosomes. Analysis of this sequence information highlighted specific expansion of some gene families during evolution, for example, flavonoid-related genes. It also provides a major… Expand
The draft genome of a diploid cotton Gossypium raimondii
TLDR
Cotton, and probably Theobroma cacao, are the only sequenced plant species that possess an authentic CDN1 gene family for gossypol biosynthesis, as revealed by phylogenetic analysis. Expand
The genome of melon (Cucumis melo L.)
TLDR
The data suggest that transposon amplification may in part explain the increased size of the melon genome compared with the close relative cucumber, and a low number of nucleotide-binding site–leucine-rich repeat disease resistance genes were annotated, suggesting the existence of specific defense mechanisms in this species. Expand
Genome sequence of the cultivated cotton Gossypium arboreum
TLDR
Comparative transcriptome studies showed the key role of the nucleotide binding site (NBS)-encoding gene family in resistance to Verticillium dahliae and the involvement of ethylene in the development of cotton fiber cells. Expand
The complete chloroplast genome of Theobroma grandiflorum, an important tropical crop
TLDR
A maximum-likelihood (ML) analysis supported a close relationship between T. grandiflorum and T. cacao and the complete chloroplast genome was reported, providing useful information for further phylogenetic and evolutionary analysis of Malvaceae. Expand
The cacao Criollo genome v2.0: an improved version of the genome for genetic and functional genomic studies
TLDR
Theobroma cacao Criollo genome version 2 will be a valuable resource for the investigation of complex traits at the genomic level and for future comparative genomics and genetics studies in cacao tree. Expand
The Streptochaeta Genome and the Evolution of the Grasses
In this work, we sequenced and annotated the genome of Streptochaeta angustifolia, one of two genera in the grass subfamily Anomochlooideae, a lineage sister to all other grasses. The final assemblyExpand
Integrated genome sequence and linkage map of physic nut (Jatropha curcas L.), a biodiesel plant.
TLDR
The draft genome of physic nut (Jatropha curcas L.), a biodiesel plant, is reported, highlighting specific expansion and contraction of a number of gene families during the evolution of this species, including the ribosome-inactivating proteins and oil biosynthesis pathway enzymes. Expand
The genome sequence of star fruit (Averrhoa carambola)
TLDR
The assembly of a high-quality chromosome-scale genome sequence for Averrhoa carambola (star fruit) is described and significant changes in MADS-box gene family content are revealed, which might be related to the cauliflory of A. carambol. Expand
A genetically anchored physical framework for Theobroma cacao cv. Matina 1-6
TLDR
The construction of a BAC-based integrated genetic-physical map of the T. cacao cultivar Matina 1-6 is described which is designed to augment and enhance sequencing efforts and is expected to complement and augment ongoing genome-sequencing efforts. Expand
The Streptochaeta genome and the evolution of the grasses
TLDR
This work sequenced and annotated the genome of Streptochaeta angustifolia, one of two genera in the grass subfamily Anomochlooideae, and identifies two large families of transcription factors that are known to control floral and spikelet development in rice and maize among other grasses and classes of small RNAs known to be influential in transcriptional and post-transcriptional regulation of several plant functions.

TLDR
Papaya offers numerous advantages as a system for fruit-tree functional genomics, and this draft genome sequence provides the foundation for revealing the basis of Carica’s distinguishing morpho-physiological, medicinal and nutritional properties. Expand
The Genome of Black Cottonwood, Populus trichocarpa (Torr. & Gray)
TLDR
Analyzing the draft genome of the black cottonwood tree, Populus trichocarpa, revealed a whole-genome duplication event; about 8000 pairs of duplicated genes from that event survived in the Populus genome. Expand

TLDR
An accurate soybean genome sequence will facilitate the identification of the genetic basis of many soybean traits, and accelerate the creation of improved soybean varieties. Expand
The grapevine genome sequence suggests ancestral hexaploidization in major angiosperm phyla
TLDR
A high-quality draft of the genome sequence of grapevine is obtained from a highly homozygous genotype, revealing the contribution of three ancestral genomes to the grapevine haploid content and explaining the chronology of previously described whole-genome duplication events in the evolution of flowering plants.

A genetic linkage map of Theobroma cacao L.
TLDR
A linkage map of the cocoa genome comprising 193 loci has been constructed and a small fraction of the markers deviated significantly from the expected Mendelian ratios. Expand
The genome of the cucumber, Cucumis sativus L.
TLDR
This study establishes that five of the cucumber's seven chromosomes arose from fusions of ten ancestral chromosomes after divergence from Cucumis melo, and identifies 686 gene clusters related to phloem function. Expand
The map-based sequence of the rice genome
TLDR
A map-based, finished quality sequence that covers 95% of the 389 Mb rice genome, including virtually all of the euchromatin and two complete centromeres, and finds evidence for widespread and recurrent gene transfer from the organelles to the nuclear chromosomes. Expand
Ancestral grass karyotype reconstruction unravels new mechanisms of genome shuffling as a source of plant evolution.
TLDR
It was shown that the chromosome number variation/reduction from the n = 12 common paleo-ancestor was driven by nonrandom centric double-strand break repair events, and it appeared that the centromeric/telomeric illegitimate recombination between nonhomologous chromosomes led to nested chromosome fusions (NCFs) and synteny break points (SBPs).
