What's New

November 2, 2018: The paper "Genome sequences of two diploid wild relatives of cultivated sweetpotato reveal targets for genetic improvement" by Wu et al. was published in Nature Communications. (https://doi.org/10.1038/s41467-018-06983-8).

October 11, 2018: The paper "Transcriptomic analysis of sweet potato under dehydration stress identifies candidate genes for drought tolerance" by Lau et al. was published in Plant Direct. (https://doi.org/10.1002/pld3.92).

April 18, 2018 The Ipomoea e-PCR tool has been released. The Ipomoea e-PCR tool performs an in-silico PCR simulation (e-PCR) using the diploid Ipomoea pseudomolecules.

August 11, 2017: The FPKM matrix for 15 abiotic and biotic stress RNA-seq libraries is available on the GT4SP Project Download Page. RNA-seq coverage tracks for these libraries are also available on the I. trifida and I. triloba genome browsers. Tracks for putative SSRs and alignments of the DM potato, Arabidopsis, morning glory (I. nil), and tomato proteins have also been added to the genome browsers.

April 17, 2017: The I. trifida and I. triloba pseudomolecules and annotation were released. The SPGR web tools, BLAST server, genome browser, and GT4SP download page were updated.

August 1, 2016: The Sweetpotato Genomics Resource was released.

July 4, 2016: Four researchers including two from the GT4SP project were awarded the World Food Prize for work on developing orange-fleshed sweetpotato.
