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.

                Maize Genetics Cooperation Stock Center Catalog of Stocks

                  The Maize Genetics Cooperation Stock Center is operated by USDA/ARS, located at the University of Illinois, Urbana/Champaign, and integrated with the National Plant Germplasm System (NPGS). The center serves the maize research community by collecting, maintaining and distributing seeds of maize genetic stocks, and providing information about maize stocks and the mutations they carry through the Maize Genetics and Genomics Database (MaizeGDB).

                  Data from: Secretome data from Trichoderma reesei and Aspergillus niger cultivated in submerged and sequential fermentation methods

                    The cultivation procedure and the fungal strain applied for enzyme production may influence levels and profile of the proteins produced. The proteomic analysis data presented here provide critical information to compare proteins secreted by Trichoderma reesei and Aspergillus niger when cultivated through submerged and sequential fermentation processes, using steam-explosion sugarcane bagasse as inducer for enzyme production.
