Novel assembly strategy cracks open the mysteries of walnut genome evolution

Hortic Res. 2019 Apr 5;6:57. doi: 10.1038/s41438-019-0143-5. eCollection 2019.

Abstract

High quality chromosome-scale assemblies from an interspecific hybrid between walnut and a wild relative reveal the persistence of asymmetric fractionation between the sub-genomes and suggest a late-Miocene origin for the genus Juglans.
