Recently, the Institute of Biology and the Institute of Quality and Resources of the Chinese Academy of Thermal Sciences, in cooperation with Fujian Agriculture and Forestry University, University of Illinois, Huazhong University of Science and Technology, Chinese Academy of Agricultural Sciences, Columbia University, and other 13 units, mapped the high-quality reference genome of the cassava cultivar SC205 (South China 205). The haplotype genome map reveals important scientific issues such as allele expression and differentiation and its influence on important traits of cassava, as well as the evolutionary driving force of genome high heterozygosity, which has laid an important theoretical foundation for genetic improvement of cassava.
