|I. Introduction for 5 genome-sequenced Sesamum indicum
Until now, the researchers from all over the
world have released genome sequences of 5 S. indicum varities,
including Zhongzhi13, Yuzhi11, Swetha, Baizhima and Mishuozhima.
The genome sequences of S. indicum var. Zhongzhi13 was released
by Oil Crops Research Institute, Chinese Academy of Agricultrual
Sciences, P.R.China. Its genome size was 269Mb, which was assembled 13
chromosomes and 4,436 unanchored scaffold sequences . The genome
sequences of S. indicum var. Yuzhi11 was released by Henan Sesame
Research Center, Henan Academy of Agricultural Sciences, P.R.China. Its
genome size was 209Mb, which was assembled 5,868 unanchored scaffold
sequences . The genome sequences of S. indicum var. Swetha was
released by Division of Genomic Resources, National Bureau of Plant
Genetic Resources, Indian Council of Agricultural Research, Ministry of
Agriculture, India. Its genome size was 344Mb, which was assembled
76,023 unanchored scaffold sequences . The genome sequences of S.
indicum var. Baizhima and Mishuozhima were released by Oil Crops
Research Institute, Chinese Academy of Agricultrual Sciences, P.R.China.
Their genome size were 263Mb and 248Mb, which were assembled 73,395 and
49,167 unanchored contig sequences .
|II. The collinear analysis among 5 genome-sequenced
Sesamum indicum varities or cultivars|
analysis among 5 genome-sequenced Sesamum indicum varities were employed
a new algorithm, Burrows-Wheeler Aligner's Smith-Waterman Alignment
(BWA-SW), which was used to align long sequences up to 1 Mb against a
large sequences. The algorithm is
as accurate as SSAHA2, more accurate than BLAT, and is several to tens
of times faster than both. .
