PAG PacBio Workshop: Empowering genetics research in Chenopodium quinoa with single molecule genomics

Ho Yung Shwen presented this talk about a new genome assembly of Chenopodium quinoa, the native South American plant known for its ability to grow in harsh environments. He used SMRT Sequencing and other tools to characterize the organism’s allotetraploid genome and to infer new information about the plant’s unknown diploid ancestors
