The Pan‐genome of the Cultivated Soybean Reveals an Extraordinarily Conserved Gene Content

1 month ago   |   By Wiley

Summary
Studies on structural variation in plants have revealed the inadequacy of a single reference genome for an entire species and suggest that it is necessary to build a species‐representative genome, called a pan‐genome to better capture the extent of both structural and nucleotide variation. Here, we present a pan‐genome of cultivated soybean , termed PanSoy, constructed using the de novo genome assembly of 204 phylogenetically and geographically representative improved accessions selected from the larger GmHapMap collection. PanSoy uncovers 108 Mb of novel nonreference sequences...
