Understanding chromosome recombination behavior in polyploid species like blueberry is key to advancing genetic discoveries. However, the line of evidence about blueberry genetic behavior still remains poorly understood, owing to the inter-specific, and inter-ploidy admixture of its genome and lack of in-depth genome-wide inheritance and comparative structural studies. In this webinar, we will provide an update on a new blueberry diploid reference genome (W85), and how it was leveraged to uncover recombination behavior and structural genome divergence/conservation across tetraploid and wild diploid species. The W85 genome guided development of the pan-genome and genotyping platform in blueberry.
