Pistacia vera (PisVer_v2)

The Pistachio Genome Project is a collaboration among Shahid Bahonar University of Kerman, Pistachio Research Center at the Horticultural Sciences Research Institute (AREEO, Rafsanjan, Iran) and the Chinese Academy of Sciences with funding from the Animal Branch of the Germplasm Bank of Wild Species, Chinese Academy of Sciences (the Large Research Infrastructure Funding) and the Strategic Priority Research Program of the Chinese Academy of Sciences (XDB13020600), and contributions in effort from pistachio breeders in Iran.

About Pistacia vera

Pistachio (Pistacia vera, 2n = 30) is one of the most important commercial nut crops worldwide that originated from Central Asia and the Middle East.
