The red clover genome is a joint effort of TGAC and IBERS. This work was funded by an Institute Programme Grant to IBERS (BB/J004405/1) from the Biotechnology and Biological Sciences Research Council (BBSRC), by the ERANET Plant Genomics programme (ERAPG038A-TRANSLEG) and by a Capacity, Capability Challenge Programme from TGAC.

About Trifolium pratense

Red clover (Trifolium pratense) is one of the most important forage legume crops in temperate agriculture, and a key component of sustainable intensification of livestock farming systems. Red clover is a highly heterozygous diploid (2n = 2x = 14) species due to its gametophytic self-incompatibility system. This assembly provides a chromosome-scale reference draft genome for a red clover genotype of the variety Milvus (Milvus B). It was published in De Vega, J. J. et al. Red clover (Trifolium pratense L.) draft genome provides a platform for trait improvement [1].
