Sorghum bicolor (Sorghum_bicolor_NCBIv3)

About Sorghum bicolor

Sorghum bicolor is a widely grown cereal crop, particularly in Africa, ranking 5th in global cereal production. It is also used as biofuel crop and potential cellulosic feedstock. The diploid genome (~730 Mb) has a haploid chromosome number of 10. Although highly repetitive, the genome is more tractable for sequencing than its close relative, Zea mays.
