Prunus dulcis (ALMONDv2)

About Prunus dulcis

Almond (Prunus dulcis) is a rosaceous tree species cultivated for its seeds; it has a diploid (2n = 2x = 16) and compact genome (about 300 Mbp). The origin of the almond tree is not well established; its closest wild relatives live in central and western Asia, stretching from the Himalayas to the eastern Mediterranean Basin. The genus Prunus comprises a group of approximately 200 species, some of which, such as peach, apricot, cherry, plum and almond have high economic value. The high level of genomic resemblance and synteny among the species of this genus enables production of hybrids that are sometimes fertile.
