Peanut Genome Sequenced with Unprecedented Accuracy

Dan Industry News Release, Peanuts, Research

Improved pest resistance and drought tolerance are among potential benefits of an international effort in which Agricultural Research Service (ARS) scientists and their collaborators have produced the clearest picture yet of the complex genomic history of the cultivated peanut. Scientists undertook this large project to better understand the molecular and cellular mechanisms that underpin the peanut plant’s growth and development, …
