Trichogramma pretiosum genome assembly v1.0

    The Baylor College of Medicine has sequenced and annotated the Trichogramma pretiosum genome as part of the i5k pilot project. This dataset presents the Trichogramma pretiosum 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. Scaffold 109 was identified to be a complete Wolbachia genome, and was removed from the assembly on GenBank and relocated to a separate record (https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/nuccore/NZ_CM003641.1).


      The Next Generation Cassava Breeding (NEXTGEN Cassava) project aims to significantly increase the rate of genetic improvement in cassava breeding and unlock the full potential of cassava, a staple crop central to food security and livelihoods across Africa. The project will implement and empirically test a new breeding method known as Genomic Selection that relies on statistical modeling to predict cassava performance before field-testing, and dramatically accelerates the breeding cycle.
