Anoplophora glabripennis Official Gene Set OGSv1.2

    The *Anoplophora glabripennis* genome was recently sequenced, assembled and annotated as part of the i5k pilot project by the Baylor College of Medicine, in collaboration with the McKenna Laboratory at the University of Memphis. The *Anoplophora glabripennis* research community has manually reviewed and curated the computational gene predictions and generated an official gene set, OGSv1.2. OGSv1.2 was generated by merging gene set AGLA-c0.5.3-Models generated by the Baylor College of Medicine, and community-curated models in the Apollo software, after QC of the Apollo output.

    Data from: Chromosome-level genome assembly and transcriptome of the green alga Chromochloris zofingiensis illuminates astaxanthin production

      For genome assembly of *C. zofingiensis* strain SAG 211–14, we used a hybrid approach blending short reads (Illumina), long reads (Pacific Biosciences of California), and whole-genome optical mapping (OpGen) (SI Appendix, SI Text and Datasets S1–S19, and refer to SI Appendix, Datasets Key). The combined power of these approaches yielded a high-quality haploid nuclear genome of *C. zofingiensis* of ∼58 Mbp distributed over 19 chromosomes (Fig. 2) in the tradition of model organism projects, as opposed to the fragmentary “gene-space” assemblies typical of modern projects using high-throughput methods and associated software. Approximately 99% of reads from the Illumina genomic libraries were accounted for, and nonplaceholder chromosomal sequence covers ∼94% of the optical map. Because no automated pipeline was found able to achieve the desired quality, methods are described in SI Appendix, SI Text.

      Pachypsylla venusta genome assembly v1.0

        The Baylor College of Medicine has sequenced and annotated the Pachypsylla venusta genome as part of the i5k pilot project. This dataset presents the Pachypsylla venusta genome v1.0. This assembly version is the pre-release version, prior to filtering and quality control by the National Center for Biotechnology Information's GenBank resource.

        Pachypsylla venusta genome annotations v0.5.3

          This dataset presents the Pachypsylla venusta gene set BCM_v_0.5.3. RNA-Seq data was used with additional protein homology data for a MAKER automated annotation of the Pachypsylla venusta genome assembly 1.0.

          Agrilus planipennis genome annotations v0.5.3

            This dataset presents the Agrilus planipennis gene set BCM_v_0.5.3. RNA-Seq data was used with additional protein homology data for a MAKER automated annotation of the Agrilus planipennis genome assembly 1.0. This dataset is free for all use.

            Blattella germanica Official Gene Set OGSv1.0

              The *Blattella germanica* genome was recently sequenced and annotated as part of the i5k pilot project by the Baylor College of Medicine. The *Blattella germanica* research community has manually reviewed and curated the computational gene predictions and generated an official gene set, OGSv1.0.

              Data from: Genome-wide Association and Genomic Prediction Identifies Soybean Cyst Nematode Resistance in Common Bean Including a Syntenic Region to Soybean Rhg1 Locus

                A panel of single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) for 363 common bean accessions was generated. A genome-wide association study (GWAS) was applied to detect SNPs significantly associated with resistance to Heterodera glycines (HG) also known as the soybean cyst nematode (SCN) in the core collection of common bean, Phaseolus vulgaris. There were 84,416 SNPs identified in 363 common bean accessions.

                Data from: Population structure and genetic diversity within the endangered species Pityopsis ruthii (Asteraceae)

                  *Pityopsis ruthii* (Ruth’s golden aster) is a federally endangered herbaceous perennial endemic to the Hiwassee and Ocoee Rivers in southeastern Tennessee, USA. Comprehensive genetic studies providing novel information to conservationists for preservation of the species are lacking. Genetic variation and gene flow were evaluated for 814 individuals from 33 discrete locations using polymorphic microsatellites: seven chloroplast and twelve nuclear. A total of 198 alleles were detected with the nuclear loci and 79 alleles with the chloroplast loci.
