Cassava genome v5.1 chromosome-scale genome assembly released!
The new version consists of the v4.1 scaffolds anchored onto the International Cassava Genetic Map Consortium framework
and the pseudomolecule sequences can be downloaded from Phytozome
. The Phytozome V10 gene models were mapped onto the v5.1 genome assembly
