OrganismsCornus florida
A single custom, normalized library for Roche/454 sequencing was prepared and sequenced for bract (‘Cherokee Brave’) and leaf (‘Appalachian Spring’ and ‘Cherokee Brave’) pooled RNA at Indiana University’s Center for Genomics and Bioinformatics. The 454 sequence reads were assembled into isotigs using Newbler software.

Read Statistics

Two cultivars of C. florida were used for sequencing: ‘Appalachian Spring’ and ‘Cherokee Brave’. RNA was extracted from leaf, fully expanded bract, and flower tissue. RNA was combined and sequenced to yield 580Mbp of sequence data from 1,621,644 reads.
