Loblolly Pine's Huge Genome Sequenced
2014-03-20 11:02:54

Genetics Society of America The massive genome of the loblolly pine—around seven times bigger than the human genome—is the largest genome sequenced to date and the most complete conifer genome sequence ever published. This achievement marks the first big test of a new analysis method that can speed up genome assembly by compressing the raw sequence data 100-fold. The draft genome is described in the March 2014 issue of GENETICS and the journal Genome Biology. Loblolly pine is the...
