Draft genome data of Prunus avium cv 'Stella'.
Additional Document Info
Prunus avium cv. 'Stella' total cellular DNA was isolated from emerging leaf tissue and sequenced using Roche 454 GS FLX Titanium, and Illumina HiSeq 2000 High Throughput Sequencing (HTS) technologies. Sequence data were filtered and trimmed to retain nucleotides corresponding to Phred score 30, and assembled with CLC Genomics Workbench v.6.0.1. A total of 107,531 contigs were assembled with 185 scaffolds with a maximum length of 132,753 nucleotides and an N50 value of 4,601. The average depth of coverage was 135.87 nucleotides with a median depth of coverage equal to 31.50 nucleotides. The draft 'Stella' genome presented here covers 77.8% of the estimated 352.9Mb P. avium genome and is expected to facilitate genetics and genomics research focused on identifying genes and quantitative trait loci (QTL) underlying important agronomic and consumer traits.
