Current Tomato Genome version SL4.0 and Annotation ITAG4.0

We are pleased to announce the release of version SL4.0 of the tomato genome and version ITAG4.0 of the annotation. You can find here more information about the assembly and annotation in thepreprint on bioRxivandslides. The genome data is available from our FTP site (Build SL4.0andITAG4.0),JBrowseApollo gene editorandBlast.

Please use thecontact formto let us know if you notice any issues with SL4.0 or ITAG4.0.

– Only 44Kb of Ns (unknown bases) compared to 81.7Mb in SL3.0

– Only 152 unplaced contigs in Chr 00 compared to 4,374 in SL3.0

– Better annotation of repeat regions in SL4.0

– 80X Pacbio coverage with RSII and Sequel (13kb read N50)

– Canu assembly (N50 5.5 Mb) and Hi-C scaffolding (12 chromosomes and unplaced contigs)

– Validated with Bionano optical maps and 10X linked reads

– 34,075 protein coding genes in ITAG4.0

– Functional descriptions assigned to 29,532 genes

– 29,281 genes preserved from ITAG2.3

– 21,962 of 29,281 preserved genes have been updated

– Most of the updated genes have extensions in the 5 and 3 UTRs

The tomato genome was published inNatureon May 31, 2012, culminating years of work by the Tomato Genome Consortium, a multi-national team of scientists from 14 countries.

The International Tomato Genome Sequencing Project was begun in 2004 by an international consortium including participants from Korea, China, the United Kingdom, India, the Netherlands, France, Japan, Spain, Italy and the United States. The initial approach was to sequence only the euchromatic sequence using a BAC-by-BAC approach, and in total more than 1,200 BACs have been sequenced. In 2009, a complementary whole-genome shotgun approach was initiated, which in conjunction with other data yielded high quality assemblies. The International Tomato Annotation Group (ITAG) annotates the genome builds generated by this combined sequencing approach.

The official annotation for the tomato genome is provided by theInternational Tomato Annotation Group (ITAG), a multinational consortium, funded in part by theEU-SOL project.

annotation data temporarily unavailable

Initial build, based on the Newbler assembler and containing only 454 sequencing data.

Like 1.00, but with additional 454 runs and improved contamination screen.

All 454 data, bac end and fosmid end data, assembled using the CABOG assembler.

Includes all 454 data, bac ends, fosmid ends, polishing with Solexa and SOLiD data.

Additional scaffold merging using clone end sequences. Scaffolds placed and oriented using multiple physical maps, first release to include chromosome pseudomolecule sequences.

Integration and polishing of tomato BAC sequences

Mask a small number of contaminated regions. Base-compatible with SL2.30.

Small amount of additional contamination removal. Regularize gap sizes to comply with GenBank policies.

Rearrangement of scaffolds and a number of gaps re-sized according to FISH data.

BAC integration, Chr00 integration and BioNano data

assembled PacBio genome scaffolded with Hi-C. Validated using Bionano and 10X linked-reads
