About the genome:

Overview (from Ming et. al.)

Papaya (Carica papaya), a fruit crop cultivated in tropical and subtropical regions, is known for its nutritional benefits and medicinal applications. Papaya offers numerous advantages as a system for fruit-tree functional genomics, and this draft genome, from the ASGPB Hawaii Papaya Genome Project, provides the foundation for revealing the basis of Carica's distinguishing morpho-physiological, medicinal and nutritional properties.


This release of the Papaya genome consists of:
Approximately 135Mb arranged in 4114 contigs with at least one gene model
27332 loci containing protein-coding transcripts
27796 protein-coding transcripts
