We have sequenced the genome of grass pea (Lathyrus sativus), a resilient diploid (2n=14) legume closely related to pea (Pisum sativum). We determined the genome size of the sequenced European accession (LS007) as 6.3 Gbp. We generated two assemblies of this genome, i) EIv1 using Illumina PCR-free paired-end sequencing and assembly followed by long-mate-pair scaffolding and ii) Rbp using Oxford Nanopore Technologies long-read sequencing and assembly followed by polishing with Illumina paired-end data. EIv1 has a total length of 8.12 Gbp (including 1.9 billion Ns) and scaffold N50 59,7 kbp. Annotation has identified 33,819 high confidence genes in the assembly. Rbp has a total length of 6.2 Gbp (with no Ns) and a contig N50 of 155.7 kbp. Gene space assessment using the eukaryote BUSCO database showed completeness scores of 82.8 % and 89.8%, respectively.

Applications of Molecular Barcoding

The concept of molecular barcoding is that each original DNA or RNA molecule is attached to a unique sequence barcode. Sequence reads having different barcodes represent different original molecules, while sequence reads having the same barcode are results of PCR duplication from one original molecule.
