Open Access Wild Tomato Genome Now Available

March 28, 2018

The Computational Biology Center (BCBC) at Boyce Thompson Institute (BTI) in collaboration with RWTH Aachen University has released an annotated genome sequence for Solanum lycopersicoides, a wild relative of tomato. The new genome sequence could help breeding programs that may hold the ability to confer S. lycopersicoides' desirable traits to marketable tomato varieties.

Visit the Sol Genomics Network to access the genome sequences publicly available as a resource for plant breeding and biology.
