Research Project: Hairy Vetch Genome Assembly

Location: Dairy Forage Research

Project Number: 5090-12210-001-17-N
Project Type: Non-Funded Cooperative Agreement

Start Date: Jun 10, 2019
End Date: May 31, 2021

Objective:
To create a chromosome level genome assembly of a hairy vetch genotype using sequencing technologies.

Approach:
The genome of a single hairy vetch genotype that has greater capacity to be clonally replicated will be sequenced using nanopore sequencing methods. If necessary a chromosome conformation capture technique will also be used for sequencing the genotype. The sequencing results will be used to assemble the genome.
