Peach v2.0 was generated from DNA from the doubled haploid cultivar 'Lovell' (PLOV2-2N) which means that the genes and intervening DNA is "fixed" or identical for all alleles and both chromosomal copies of the genome. This doubled haploid nature has facilitated a highly accurate and consistent assembly of the peach genome. In the new release (Peach v2.0) the aim was to improve several issues such as the chromosome-scale assembly, and the annotation of the repeated and gene sequences. The base accuracy and contiguity were improved using contigs generated by an ABySS assembly of WGS Illumina reads. In addition, the peach v1.0 assembly was improved using large community molecular mapping data obtained on three linkage maps. The primary repository for peach genetic, genomic and breeding data is the Genome Database for Rosaceae.
