Bottle gourd genome provides insight on evolutionary history and genetic relationships of cucurbit crops – Boyce Thompson Institute

Researchers from the Boyce Thompson Institute (BTI), the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA), and collaborators in China and France have produced the first high-quality genome sequence for the bottle gourd (Lagenaria siceraria) and a reconstructed genome of the most recent Cucurbitaceae ancestor. In their findings, researchers compared the sequenced bottle gourd genome to those […]
