Chromosome-level genome assembly obtained from PacBio long-read sequencing and Hi-C scaffolding. Consists of 9 chromosomal sequences and 435 unplaced scaffolds.
Assembly and annotation version
The current version of the Marchantia genome assembly is ver5.1 (MpTak1v5.1).
The current annotation version is Revision 1 (MpTak1v5.1_r1).
The Genome Annotation Jamboree was held during Marchantia Workshop 2019 (Sendai, Japan) to improve gene annotation.
We have a plan to update the annotation by incorporating the effort made in the Jamboree, which eventually will be Revision 2.
This may include several minor fixes of the nucleotide sequences (gap filling, indel correction).
Chromatin organization in early land plants reveals an ancestral association between H3K27me3, transposons, and constitutive heterochromatin (Montgomery, Tanizawa, et al. Current Biology, 30(4) P573-588, 2020.
Draft genome sequences obtained under the initiative of DOE Joint Genome Institute (JGI). Consists of 2,957 scaffolds (4,454 contigs).
The genomic data is also available at JGI Genome Portal.
