Detailed coverage of invasive species threatening livelihoods and the environment worldwide

Abstract

Sequencing and de novo assembly of the complete chloroplast genome of the Peruvian carrot (Arracacia xanthorrhiza Bancroft).

Abstract

Arracacia xanthorrhiza is an important secondary food crop in South America and Puerto Rico. The lack of crop protection and improvement strategies leads to infections damaging the storage roots. Here, we report the annotated complete chloroplast genome sequence of A. xanthorrhiza as a step toward developing genomic resources for this crop.
