Our group has completed the gene space assembly of the Brazilian modern cultivar SP80-3280, which includes the complete sequence of 373,869 genes and their upstream regions which may be further explored to identify regulatory promoter elements. This is the largest genomic data set available for the sugarcane researchers’ community and includes putative homo(eo)logs (mostly 2–5 copies) for a large fraction of the SP80-3280 gene space. You can read the complete paper here.

The availability of a genome browser with the gene space assembly of SP80-3280 polyploid cultivar enables the survey of sequences and annotation in a global and dynamic way.
