Helianthus annuus (HanXRQr2.0-SUNRISE)

About Helianthus annuus

The domesticated sunflower, Helianthus annuus, is a globally important oil crop that has promise for climate change adaptation, maintaining stable yields across a wide variety of environmental conditions, including drought. The large diploid genome (2n=34 ; 3.6 Gb) consists of long and highly similar repeats, making the assembly very challenging.
