Recent advances in genome sequencing technologies have led to a dramatic reduction in costs and enable the analysis of entire crop plant genomes. Eleven years after sequencing Arabidopsis thaliana (The Arabidopsis Genome Initiative TAGI 2000), the genome of a doubled monoploid Solanum tuberosum group Phureja clone, DM1-3 516 R44, was reported (Potato Genome Sequencing Consortium PGSC 2011).
A major challenge in the post-genome sequencing era is to obtain high-quality annotations of genomes to realise the full potential of genome sequences for functional studies and comparative analysis.
The following resources have been generated based on the potato genome and PGSC DM gene models v4.03.:
Additional tools are currently being developed and will be added to this site in due course.
