https://www.danforthcenter.org/news-media/roots-shoots-blog/blog-item/how-greater-understanding-of-resurrection-plants-could-lead-to-more-drought-tolerant-crops
Recent genome sequencing of Oropetium grass has given researchers a blueprint in distinguishing genes related to phenomenal plant resilience.
of water and life comes forth: plant resurrection. Recent genome sequencing of Oropetium grass has, to Pacific Biosciences’ “Most Interesting Genome in the World” grant program. The genome sequencing, , The genome of a tiny resurrection plant has been sequenced using solely the long-read, single-molecule real-time (SMRT) sequencing technology developed by PacBio, and provides the basis for understanding extreme desiccation tolerance. The level of genome contiguity is comparable to that obtained by far

Summary Blake's work focuses on genome-scale studies of RNA and components of RNA silencing pathways, with next-generation DNA sequencing since its earliest days, and he has developed a number, and their targets, working with “next-gen” sequencing technologies nearly since their invention. Their work with next-gen sequencing stretches back to ~2001, when Blake was funded by the NSF to apply “MPSS, , then 454, and finally the still-current Illumina SBS sequencing.
