ELIGULUM-A regulates lateral branch and leaf development. Original figure files

TIFF and JPEG files for the photographs used in constructing figures and supplemental figures in the manuscript, "ELIGULUM-A regulates lateral branch and leaf development," submitted to Plant Physiology. The images document a mutation that alters most of the structures of the plant and how the ELIGULUM-A gene interacts with different developmental pathways. The Figure Legend files describe the images individually.

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.
