Gossypium arboreum (A2) 'SXY1' genome WHU-updated v1
About the assembly
The new assembly of Gossypium arboreum genome (cultivar Shi Xi Ya 1) was released from the Institute for Advanced Studies, Wuhan University, Wuhan, China (IAS-WHU). The assembly were sequenced using high-depth SMRT long reads resulting in 177-fold genome coverage (~310 Gb). The genome assembly was corrected by using accurate Illumina paired-end reads. Finally, 92.18% of total contigs spanning 1,509 Mb were categorized and ordered into 13 chromosome-scale scaffolds using Hi-C data. Compared with first draft genome of G. arboreum in 2014 (Li, F. et al., Nature Genetics 46, 567-572 (2014)) and genome update of G. arboreum in 2018 (Du, X. et al., Nature Genetics 50, 796-802 (2018)), the new genome assembly has substantial improvements with high completeness and accuracy. In addition, the new assembly filled a lot of genome gaps existed in two previous assemblies. The new assembly also showed high congruence and good collinear relationships in quantity among cotton genomes. Our continuing efforts to assemble the high-resolution and chromosome-scale G. arboreum reference genome will further facilitate the translation of genomics to cotton breeding and genetics.

Homology of the Gossypium arboreum WHU Genome v1.0 proteins was determined by pairwise sequence comparison using the blastp algorithm against various protein databases. An expectation value cutoff less than 1e-9 was used for the NCBI nr (Release 2018-05) and 1e-6 for the Arabidoposis proteins (Araport11), UniProtKB/SwissProt (Release 2019-01), and UniProtKB/TrEMBL (Release 2019-01) databases. The best hit reports are available for download in Excel format.
Marker alignments were performed by the CottonGen Team of Main Bioinformatics Lab at WSU. The alignment tool 'BLAT' was used to map marker sequences from CottonGen to the Gossypium arboreum genome assembly. Markers required 90% identity over 97% of their length. For SSRs & RFLPs, gap size was restricted to 1000bp or less with less than 2 gaps. For dbSNPs and Indels gap size was restricted to 2bp with less than 2 gaps. The available files are in GFF3 format. Markers available in CottonGen are linked to JBrowse.
Transcript alignments were performed by the CottonGen Team of Main Bioinformatics Lab at WSU. The alignment tool 'BLAT' was used to map transcripts to the G. arboreum genome assembly. Alignments with an alignment length of 97% and 90% identify were preserved. The available files are in GFF3 format.
