About Papaver somniferum
The opium poppy (Papaver somniferum) is a diploid (2n=22) of the Papaveraceae family. The sap, known as opium, contains various alkaloids, including morphine and codeine, with effects ranging from pain relief and cough suppression to euphoria, sleepiness, and addiction. It has been a source of painkillers since the Neolithic. Opium poppy remains the only commercially viable source of the morphinan subclass of benzylisoquinoline alkaloids. This is the genome of cultivar High Noscapine 1 (HN1).
