Medicago sativa cv. Mercedes genome sequence

Abstract : An alfalfa (or lucerne) genome reference sequence is an essential tool for breeding of this major legume species. A clone of Flemish origin has been sequenced and the genome assembly has been carried out with NRGene protocols. A total of almost 190 000 scaffolds have been generated and this genome assembly reaches 2.6 Gb (80% of the 3.2 Gb expected). Genome annotation has provided 233 049 protein-coding genes and 36 752 non-protein coding genes. A genome portal based on JBrowse has been developed for searching the annotated genome (
