Triticum urartu Assembly and Gene Annotation
About Triticum urartu
Triticum urartu is the diploid progenitor of the bread wheat A-genome, providing important evolutionary information for bread and durum wheat. It is closely related to einkorn wheat, T. monococcum.
The genome of Triticum urartu (Tu) accession G1812 (PI428198) was sequenced and assembled by the Institute of Genetics and Developmental Biology Chinese Academy of Sciences under the name Tu2.0. The assembled contig sequences were 4.79 Gb with an N50 of 344 kb and scaffold sequences were 4.86 Gb with an N50 of 3.67 Mb, very close to the estimated genome size of 4.94 Gb.
41,507 protein-coding genes, including 37,516 high-confidence and 3,991 low-confidence genes were predicted using the Gramene pipeline.
