Assembly of the Flax Genome into Chromosomes

Part of the Plant Genetics and Genomics: Crops and Models book series (PGG,volume 23)

Abstract

Flax (Linum usitatissimum L.) is a diploid species with a haploid number of 15 chromosomes. The flax genome has been sequenced, and the first draft reference sequence was released in 2012. Flax genomic resources including bacterial artificial chromosome (BAC) libraries, a BAC-based physical map, BAC-end sequences, high-density genetic maps, and a BioNano genome optical map have been developed. Integration of these genomic resources assisted in the validation the draft reference sequence and its ordering into chromosomes, resulting in a higher-quality flax reference sequence useful for genome evolution studies, comparative genomic analyses, genetic research and molecular breeding.
