// Oilseed Rape ('Canola')

Canola Pan genome consortium is currently open, join today and enjoy its full benefits!

Oilseed rape, (also referred to as Canola) is an important type of oil crop that is low in erucic acid. Belonging to the genus Brassica napus, oilseed rape varieties are some of the oldest plants cultivated by humans and formed around 7500 years ago by the hybridization between B. rapa and B. oleracea species. This hybridization was followed by chromosome doubling resulting in a complex alloploid genome. Today, researchers are discovering new uses of the plant and seeking to push the boundaries of oilseed rape cultivation by exploring new growing conditions. With the increase in genomic analysis the canola community are seeking increased yields, improved hardiness and profitability while elevating the overall quality of the oil (and meal).

By joining this consortium, you can expand your genomic research efforts - you will benefit from access to its de novo assembled genomes, pseudo chromosome construction, direct linear mappings between genomes, homology based annotation for each of them and full gene Presence Absence, copy number and structural variation analysis (PAV, CNV and SV) and their visualization.
