Capsicum chinense is one of the best ingredients for making chili sauces and extracting capsaicin. In this study, we identified 59 genes associated with shikimic acid, phenylpropane, unsaturated fatty acids, phenylalanine, valine, leucine, isoleucine and other metabolic pathways based on pepper genome. In the present study, 58 of the 59 genes involved in capsaicin synthesis were found to be unevenly distributed on 11 chromosomes, and several genes with the same number of exons and high...
