(GenomeWeb) With Single-Molecule Sequencing, Researchers Generate Near-Complete Grass Genome
https://www.danforthcenter.org/news-media/in-the-news/in-the-news-item/(genomeweb)-with-single-molecule-sequencing-researchers-generate-near-complete-grass-genome
Using single-molecule sequencing, researchers led by the Donald Danforth Plant Science Center's Todd Mockler have generated a near-complete genome of Oropetium thomaeum, a desiccation-tolerant grass.
(GenomeWeb) With Single-Molecule Sequencing, Researchers Generate Near-Complete Grass Genome, generated a near-complete genome of Oropetium thomaeum, a desiccation-tolerant grass. While a number, . To generate this O. thomaeum genome, Mockler and his colleagues instead turned to long reads from Pacific, of the O. thomaeum genome and were able to delve into its intergenic and duplicated sequences, some of which may be vital to the plant's ability to withstand drought. "The draft genome is near

It's a charismatic, distinctive symbol of the California deserts -- and it's in trouble. The Joshua tree, the iconic denizen of the Mojave Desert, faces serious threats from climate change, drought, and human development.
(KCET) Scientists Want to Unlock the Joshua Tree's Secrets, It's a charismatic, distinctive symbol of the California deserts -- and it's in trouble. The Joshua tree, the iconic denizen of the Mojave Desert, faces serious threats from climate change, drought, and human development. And a group of scientists wants to see if the tree's genome holds potential answers to those threats. The Joshua Tree Genome Project aims to complete the first genome of an individual Joshua tree. That first genome
How Greater Understanding of Resurrection Plants Could Lead to More Drought-Tolerant Crops
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.
, The genome of a tiny resurrection plant has been sequenced using solely the long-read, single-molecule real, extreme desiccation tolerance. The level of genome contiguity is comparable to that obtained by far, of water and life comes forth: plant resurrection.
