Genome sequence and genetic diversity of European ash trees

Abstract:

Ash trees (genus Fraxinus, Oleaceae) are widespread throughout the Northern Hemisphere, but are being devastated in Europe by the fungus Hymenoscyphus fraxineus, causing ash dieback (ADB), and in North America by the Emerald Ash Borer (EAB), Agrilus planipennis1,2. We sequenced the genome of a low-heterozygosity Fraxinus excelsior tree from Britain annotating 38,852 protein-coding genes of which 25% appear ash specific when compared with ten other plant species’ genomes. Analyses of paralogou...
