Abstract

Agricultural productivity is a growing concern and several key genomes have been sequenced with the goal of exploring how traits of genomic adaptation could be transferred to cultivated crops, this having been the cornerstone of crop research. Much of the focus has been on crop species that have been directly used to address human needs, considering projected population growth up until 2050 and beyond. However, it is likely that a deeper understanding of mechanisms that could be used to engineer crops will come from the study of early embryophytes (land plants) and closely related freshwater green algae, traits from which could be exploited to boost crop productivity in terms of genomic adaptation with a view towards understanding the basic building blocks of crop engineering. We present the mitogenome of Blasia pusilla (an early embryophyte), assembled using PACBIO SMRT and Illumina sequencing and highlights its role from the phylogenetic perspective.
