Available here is genomic data for the polyploid plant Brassica rapa ssp. pekinensis line Chiifu-401-42, a Chinese cabbage. As there are several oil and vegetable crop species in the Brassica family, this genome is of great agricultural relevance. It also provides an important resource for studying the evolution of polyploid genomes. The Brassica rapa Genome Sequencing Project Consortium assembled a 283.8 Mb genome estimated to cover >98% of the gene space. Using 72X coverage of...
