Cowpea genome and transcriptome data resource

Assembled genomic and tissue-specific transcriptomic data resources for two genetically distinct lines of Cowpea (Vigna unguiculata (L.) Walp). For each of two varieties of cowpea (IT97K-499-35, IT86D-1010) this collections contains the following datasets : i) genomic survey assemblies based on Illumina sequencing ii) transcriptome assemblies iii)... more

About this Project

Capturing Heterosis for Smallholders, OPP1076280

The project aims to develop tools to generate self-reproducing sorghum and cowpea hybrids from which seeds can be saved and grown by smallholder farmers without loss of yield of quality.
