BioNano genome mapping, yielding a final genome assembly that surpassed an N50 of 5Mb.Hence, it is one of the most contiguous Solanum genome assemblies thus far, and with 97% coverage of the expected gene space, also one of the most complete ones. We subsequently annotated the genome
sequence and reconstructed the evolution of genes crucial to potato and/or tomato phenotypes and specifically related to tuber formation, pathogen resistance, flower color and glycoalkaloid biosynthesis. The genome of S. etuberosum thus proved to be an invaluable resource for novel insights in the Solanum genus.
