Data from: Characterization of the teosinte transcriptome reveals adaptive sequence divergence during maize domestication

Jun Huang, Gao Youjun, Jia Haitao, Zuxin Zhang, Youjun Gao & Haitao Jia
Annual teosinte, the ancestor of cultivated maize (Zea mays ssp. mays), is a valuable germplasm for enhancing the genetic diversity and adaptability of maize to various environment stimuli. However, comprehensive transcriptomic and genomic resources are unavailable in public databases, which significantly impede the identification and utilization of favourable genes or alleles in teosinte. In this study, we globally sequenced the transcriptomes of six teosinte accessions by Illumina paired-end sequencing. A high-quality teosinte transcriptome was de...
