Interpretive Summary:

Technical Abstract: The tomato genome sequence was undertaken at a time when state-of-the-art sequencing methodologies were undergoing a transition to co-called next generation methodologies. The result was an international consortium undertaking a strategy merging both old and new approaches. Because biologists were guiding the effort with an eye toward maximal utility, one of the highest quality plant genomes produced to date resulted as a tool for this model species and broader scientific inquiries into crop and plant biology. The chapters comprising this volume details both the process and the outcome of this far-reaching international effort that will continue to be improved and serve as the basis for discovery over years to come.
