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
