Research Project: Sequencing, Assembly and Annotation of the Avocado Cultivar VC75 Genome

Location: Subtropical Horticulture Research

Project Number: 6038-21000-024-03-N
Project Type: Non-Funded Cooperative Agreement

Start Date: Feb 1, 2018
End Date: Jan 31, 2020

Objective:
Sequence, assemble and annotate the avocado cultivar VC75 genome.

Approach:
VC75 genomic DNA will be commercially sequenced. Sequence data will be uploaded to USDA supercomputer Ceres (Iowa State University). Assembly and annotation will be performed on Ceres using available bioinformatics tools.
