P. tremula x P. alba, clone INRA 717-1B4 draft genome sequence

Clone INRA 717-1B4

Clone INRA 717-1B4 whole-genome draft assembly v0.9

 
 

Overview

Here we focus on the clone INRA 717-1B4, a female P. tremula x P. alba (P. x canescens) interspecific hybrid. The clone INRA 717-1B4 is a female clone, originating from a cross between a female Populus tremula tree (tree # 5903) harvested on March 3, 1959 in the Parroy forest (Meurthe Moselle, France) and a male Populus alba tree (tree # 6072) harvested on February 22, 1960 close to the Pont du Gard (France). This hybrid was part of a breeding program initiated by Dr. Michel Lemoine in the 1960’s (Lemoine 1973, PhD thesis). Trees 5903 and 6072, installed in the nurseries of Nancy, were lost during storms in 1999, and unfortunately vegetative copies of the parents are not available.

Due to its high susceptibility to Agrobacterium tumefaciens infection, this clone is universally used by scientists worldwide as a model woody species in transgenic experiments to discover gene expression and function. We assembled draft genomic scaffolds by a combination of de novo assembly and reference-based assembly.
