Apricot (Prunus armeniaca L.) is an important, nutritionally valuable agricultural crop. A scarcity of transcriptomic and genomic data hinders progress toward understanding the molecular events of apricot embryogenesis, which is the primary determinant of fruit yield and kernel quality. In this study, three cDNA libraries were sequenced using an Illumina/Solexa platform. We obtained 35,928,496, 40,656,940, and 35,970,214 clean reads from endosperm formation (LT-A), embryo development (LT-B… CONTINUE READING
