International Research Team Releases New Version of Sunflower Genome

A previously unattainable version of the sunflower genome has been released
by a team of scientists from NRGene. The NRGene-produced genome is more
comprehensive than any existing version.

The assembled genome is 3.22 Gbp, built of scaffolds with an N50 of ~13.5
Mbp, less than 1% unfilled gaps, and the BUSCO results of 91% indicate that
the genome is 90% complete. The scientists used genomics and bioinformatics
to study the genetics of adaptation and domestication, identifying the
genetic changes that underlie the formation of new varieties and the
genotype-phenotype-environment interaction.
