Project NameArachis duranensis cultivar: V14167 Genome sequencing
Additional information about this project:
Property NameValue
Project typegenome assembly
Project descriptionArachis duranensis is a wild annual plant native to Argentina, Bolivia, and Paraguay. It is thought to be one of the diploid ancestors of cultivated tetraploid peanut. Arachis duranensis accession V14167 was sequenced at Beijing Genomics Institute, with funding from The Peanut Foundation, as part of the International Peanut Genome Initiative. The sequencing stragety was whole-genome shotgun, from eight Illumina paired-end sequencing libraries, with insert sizes ranging from 170 bp to 40 kb. The primary contig and scaffold assemblies were constructed using SOAPdenovo (v2.04).
