Saccharum spontaneum (Sspon.HiC_chr_asm)

About Saccharum spontaneum

Saccharum spontaneum is a sugar-poor relative of sugarcane which breeders have backcrossed for traits such as hardiness, disease resistance or ratooning capacity. It belongs to the PACMAD clade within grasses (Poaceae). This is a Hi-C-based genome assembly of one haploid individual (AP85-441, 1n =​ 4x =​ 32). The genome size was estimated to be 3.36 Gbp by flow cytometry. This genome is an international collaboration led by Fujian Agriculture and Forestry University, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign and Hawaii Agriculture Research Center.
